  2. Pour olive oil into frying pan and place on low – medium heat for 2 minutes. Add vegetable bowl and stir for 5 minutes.
  3. stir fry is ready!

Serving:  I love this stir-fry because it can serve up to four different meals or more and you can store it in the fridge or freezer for up to a week (or longer in the freezer) without it losing its fresh taste.

  1. Add Tofu and served as a stir fry dish.
  2. Can be served with boiled rice (Wash rice three times or until water is clear, then boil rice for 15 – 20 minutes on medium to high heat).


Serve with fried/boiled plantain (Peel Plantain and Boil for 15 minutes on medium to high heat).
