WHY BITTER VEGETABLES ARE GOOD FOR US…
Even my husband who usually likes my vegetables find cruciferous vegetables a bit difficult to enjoy. They can be a bit too crunchy and when they’re too raw, gives off a bitter taste. However, it’s the bitter part that helps with inflammation, they’re also full of fiber which helps to activate your organs and good for gut health.
We LOVE bitter vegetables but it’s a different kind of bitter. So, when I cooked these multi colored cauliflower and broccoli florets, he loved them done this way.
In Asia, we enjoy eating our vegetables with every meal even from a very young age and I’m happy to share how we cook them so you’ll enjoy them too.
Try this delicious way for cooking flavorful vegetables so you’ll LOVE them!
This stir fry process works especially well with firm stemmed veggies like gorgeous multi colored cauliflower & broccoli florets. Crunchy on the outside but tender inside! Sprinkling spices at the end of the stir fry gives them a punch of flavor.
FLAVOR is probably what’s missing and why many don’t enjoy eating vegetables!
The secret is to FRY first to get crunchy texture and retain bright colors THEN blanche not the other way round which is what most traditional recipes tell you to do! When you blanche first, the vegetables become soft, lose their brightness and will be much harder to crisp them.

STIR FRY PROCESS…
1. Fry with AVOCADO OIL, garlic & ginger on medium high heat in cast iron wok or skillet.
2. Add a little stock or water and “steam fry” with lid on.
3. Add seasonings near the end of cooking time like a little sprinkle of medium sherry or leftover wine, salt and any dry spices or dried herbs you have. Mine were Ajika chili powder and 21 Seasoning Salute, both from Trader Joe’s.
What a perfect pairing.
The pork ribs were seasoned with my own made up spice rub, so good! I’ll post what spices I used to make up your spice rub, good for grilling meats, stir fried vegetables or sprinkle on salads!
My Wok Star cooking process is simple and easy. When you take my online class, you’ll discover you only need 4 TSPC seasonings. They are sprinkled for marinades, sauces and stir fried vegetables. You don’t need recipes or exact measurements for easy, healthy weeknight dinners.
