This Girl Eats: Stir Fry Noms

I recently got asked on Twitter to share my go-to dinner for the end of a long day’s work/workout. Bear in mind I prefer to work out in the evening, so when I get home I am usually famished, and not in the mood to put a lot of thought into my food! It’s a tad more effort than a ready meal, but I absolutely love cooking for myself and others. Plus this dish is so versatile- see further down for suggested swap-outs.

I’m not gonna call it a ‘recipe’ since it varies so heavily depending on what I have in the house and what I feel like eating. But here are the suggested ingredients for 2 people:

  • 200g kale
  • 200g frozen veggies or 1 whole stir-fry veggie pack
  • 1 pack of microwaveable brown rice
  • 1 tin of black beans
  • 1 tin tuna
  • 4 eggs
  • Ginger/garlic
  • Soy sauce
  • Spices (I use Five Spice and Chilli Powder)
  • Oil (I use an olive oil spray)

  1. Heat oil in a wok, and add garlic/ginger.
  2. Add frozen veggies straight from the pack (if using) and cook for around 5 mins.
  3. Add kale (and stir fry veg pack if using) plus spices & soy sauce.
  4. Stir fry until almost cooked.
  5. Add rice straight from the pack and cook through for 2 mins, stirring regularly.
  6. Add black beans and tuna.
  7. Add the eggs to the wok and stir together until cooked through. (Note: you can also cook the eggs most of the way through before stirring, if you like big chunks of yummy yolk!)
  8. Add sauces (I love some hot sauce!)
  9. Spoon into mouth enthusiastically
  10. (Optional: add cottage cheese when you realise you made it way too hot!)
See, even Paula approves!

This is a meal I’ve been making a lot recently as it’s so versatile- here are some ideas for substitutions you could make:

  • Swap rice for ready cooked lentils
  • Swap tuna for salmon or tofu
  • Swap black beans for any other pulse
  • Swap kale for spinach (I personally prefer kale as it’s more substantial)

Enjoy! And let me know if you try it out!

Lots of love
