There are so many reasons to get a little greener in the kitchen. Learning to cook greener meals is an excellent way to increase your vegetable intake, reduce your carbon footprint and be able to cater to friends and family with different dietary requirements. You may think that cooking with veggies is boring and bland, well that’s where Lee Kum Kee sauces come in to save the day! We’re going to a show you couple of our favourite ways to make your vegetarian ingredients taste amazing using our green pantry essentials.
When we think of Chinese cooking, it’s safe to say stir fry is a staple, right? We love it AND it’s such a great way to cook to make without animal products. Stacked full of fresh vegetables, our Buddha's Delight, Vegetable Stir Fry uses all three of our green pantry essentials; Vegetarian Stir-Fry Sauce, Pure Sesame Oil and Soy Sauce (GF Optional) to create a scrumptious marinade that’ll have your entire family drooling, while you prepare their nourishing, meat-less meal. That’s right, you don’t even have to hide the greens from the kids!
When you’re cooking meatless meals, it is so important to make sure you’re using good, quality meat replacements, in order to get enough protein and iron. Variety is very important, ideally, you want a colourful dish made up of mostly whole foods. Tofu is a delicious, high protein meat alternative that’s very popular in Chinese cooking and of course, perfectly suited to our sauces! Or you can try the meat alternative options that can look and taste just like the real thing! A couple of our favourite, nutritious vegan options are black beans, chickpeas and quinoa. Quinoa has a staggering 16.5g of protein per 100g, and it’s delicious and filling. You could make up a bowl of quinoa, drizzle a combination of Lee Kum Kee Pure Sesame Oil and Gluten Free Soy Sauce to add all the flavour you need, and you have yourself a healthy meat-less snack. OR, you could really go to town and put together our decadent Kale and Quinoa Salad with Lime Vinaigrette! It only takes 15 minutes to prepare and is so easy!
