    A Meat-Light Stir Fry

    Meat-Light Stir Fry

    Your effort to consume less meat doesn’t mean that going plant-based one or more meals a day is your only option, as you can also eat less meat per meal. Here’s a meat-light stir fry idea.

    Go For Ground

    I prefer ground turkey, but you can also use ground beef, chicken or pork. The average stir fry would measure about 1/4 pound of meat per person, so take this down to about 1/8 pound per person. Eggs can be part of the protein mix too.

    Plant-Based Protein

    Mushrooms are high in protein so I put in 2 to 4 per person depending on their size, shitake and cremini are two of my favorites. Mushrooms also boost the flavor profile. You can also use tofu or other meat alternatives. Serve over a protein-packed grain like quinoa.

    Veggies

    The real key to keeping this meal delicious is selecting veggies that you really love. I always add zucchini, cabbage, a second green, tomato, onion, and garlic. For added flavor simmer in a veggie broth, flavored olive oil, soy sauce, herbs, and spices. You can even add chilli pepper or hot sauce to kick things up a notch.

    Or do a 100% veggie stir fry with a meat appetizer. Here’s to your healthy and delicious stir fry!
