A snowy filled evening is the perfect time to make your first stir-fry, right?
The star of our show? Spaghetti Squash for $5.49. I thought it was a tad bit large and expensive. I was not sure what to do with something the size of a newborn. Do I burp it?
To cook the squash- I poked a million holes in it, said a quick prayer and set it in the microwave for 15 minutes. Note: I would have cooked it longer, it tasted a bit uncooked.
To eat you literally scoop out the entire middle and start scraping away at the sides.
I got to work on the stir fry. I was not really sure how to get things started so I asked my mom and she told me to fry some onions.
After that I rushed with chopping and adding things in. I should have chopped everything first, but you live and learnn!
- Baby corn
- Green Pepper
- Snow peas
- 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
- A pinch of chili powder
- 3/4 of the bottle of Thai Yellow Curry Sauce
- Salt to taste
I added the sauce after all the veggies has simmered for a while and were tender.
After adding the sauce I covered the pan and let every thing bubble up!
In between chopping and stirring my stir fry I made a bit of a mess! It was hectic!
I served the stir fry over a bed of spaghetti squash
I think for my first attempt at cooking a stir fry this was really good! The chickpeas went really well with the curry sauce!
Nothing burned. Nobody got sick. I would have to consider this attempt of me cooking a great success!!
