Stir fries - one of the worlds easiest and maybe quickest ways to cook! Use whatever plants you have at home and let that be the base of you fry! I like to use a wok pan because I find it easier to give it all a good toss and shake with that pan - but of course you could use just any. Most important thing is - just get cooking!

Servers 4

Ingredients

2 dl / 0.8 cups wild rice, uncooked *

600 grams mixed types of mushrooms, I used chanterelles and oyster mushrooms **

500 grams mixed Brussels sprouts and/or flower sprouts (or, use any typ of Brassica such as dino kale/kale/Savoy cabbage)

250 grams Jerusalem artichokes

1 handful of fresh parsley

cold pressed coconut oil for frying

salt and freshly ground black peppar

Green pea and spinach dip

500 grams green peas, frozen thawed

100 grams organic baby spinach, fresh

1 handful of fresh cilantro

1 garlic clove

2 Tbsp light tahini

1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

How to

Cook the wild rice according to instructions on the packaging. Let cool.

Brush the mushrooms, tear in to smaller pieces. Cut away the very bottom part of the Brussels sprouts and flower sprouts if necessary. Cut the bigger ones in half. Scrub the Jerusalem artichokes carefully, slice thinly.

Stir fry the Brussels sprouts and flower sprouts for 5 minutes in a tiny amount of oil (we want to keep it all fresh and light!) for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, Jerusalem artichokes and stir fry until it’s looks nice and gets a bit of golden coloured. Remove from heat. Salt and pepper to taste.

Mix all the ingredients for the dip. Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve the stir fry with with some wild rice and a good dollop of green pea spinach dip, sprinkle with parsley.

* If you cannot find wild rice any cooked whole grain will work!

** If you cannot get hold of fresh mushrooms of your liking dried (then soaked) or frozen ones works too!
