Pepper Stir Fry with a twist – Aromatic, Simple & Easy

Hello friends, I am excited to share with you my first recipe post as Flavours and Aroma. This Pepper Stir Fry recipe is a simple main course recipe that is both flavourful and aromatic (excuse the pun). It is so simple and straightforward that anyone can cook it regardless of their expertise in the kitchen.

Our first stop on this food adventure is China, the birthplace of stir fry dishes. Stir-fries involve frying the ingredients in a small amount of very hot oil while stirring (hence the name). Because the ingredients cook rapidly, they retain a lot of their fresh look and become crispy on the outside. This rapid cooking also helps lock in flavours. Traditionally the ingredients consist of vegetables along with a form of protein be it meat, poultry or fish

I love making stir-fries mainly because they are quick, simple and can be paired with any food. I have had stir-fries with pasta, rice, wraps and egg noodles.

Stir fry vegetable packs would include vegetables such as carrot, cabbage and beansprout. This pepper stir fry recipe stemmed from my desire not to have the traditional vegetables just some peppers and courgette. The main source of protein in the recipe is the chicken breast. I love adding mushrooms to my stir fry recipes as they are a good source of fibre, protein and antioxidants. They are also good for bone health (Click here for more information about the health benefits of mushrooms).

  • Make sure the oil is very hot before adding ingredients but cook on medium heat to avoid overcooking.
  • For a vegetarian option, replace the chicken breast with more vegetables or meat-free protein substitutes such as Quorn pieces and tofu.
  • In case you are unable to make the ground spices, it can be substituted with a combination of mixed spices (2 teaspoons), cumin powder (1 teaspoon), ground coriander (1 teaspoon) and mixed herbs (1 teaspoon).
