Dinner: Creamy polenta with teriyaki stir-fried veg

2015-02-09 21.49.31

A quick recipe full of iron, perfect as a post workout meal. I usually add a sausage or other protein to this, and make a green smoothie to go with it, so I can feel good about workingout and eating well, if only for that day!


Cut any veg that is on hand. I usually use broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and mushrooms, but use whatever takes your fancy. Fry the broccoli first, using a bit of olive oil.

Make the teriyaki sauce: I use 4 tablespoons white or rice vinegar,1/4 cup soy sauce (I always add lots of soy sauce, but add it to taste),1 tablespoon sesame oil, 3 teaspoons brown sugar, 2 garlic cloves (I usually add more because I love garlic), 1/2 teaspoons ginger, 1/4 teaspoon chilli flakes, black pepper to taste

After 10 mins of frying, add the rest of the veg to the broccoli and all of the sauce. Cook for another 10 mins, or until the veg is cooked. Add some nutritious yeast if desired. Cook polenta last, it should only take a few minutes. Optionally you can add a bit of grated vegan cheese to the polenta after it’s done, to gove it a creamy flavour. Spoon the veg over the polenta, add a protein source if you want and enjoy.
