Its been days since I have been longing for more than 24 hours to exist. There were times when I had too much of time on my hands and it is otherwise now. So when it comes to putting together a meal, a quick fix seems to be the only option considering my need of time now. And a stir fry of every vegetable I use makes an appearance quite frequently. Although brussel sprouts are not a favourite with all, my family loves them. It does not matter whether it is roasted, boiled or braised. But I have been on the fence regarding these so long until I decided to stir fry these green vegetables.
I halved about 10 brussel sprouts and cubed 1 potato. Boiled them both. I added star anise and cloves to the water that the sprouts were boiled in for a flavour. Minced garlic was sauteed in oil to which the sprouts and the potatoes were added. 1/2 a cup of chicken stock was added and then stir fried to a dry consistency. A seasoning of salt and lots of pepper and this stir fry is ready to be on the table. I loved this aromatic and flavoursome stir fry and am sure most of you out there will adore it too.
