30 Minute, No Mess – Spicy Baked ‘Stir Fry’

  30 Minute, No Mess, Baked 'Stir Fry' from Canned-Time.com

This dish is the easiest way I know to enjoy all the flavors and nutrition of a stir fried meal, without the Wok!  

It’s also a wonderful way to use up some older veggies and give them new life for a quick, healthy super.  I used yellow squash and sweet pea pods for this one.  Obviously, a zillion different veggies would have worked just as well.  This one is all about the sauce.

You can make the sauce up a couple of days in advance even if needed – Party food anyone?  And then just clean and cut up whichever veggies you choose.  Put your cut veggies in a deep baking dish.  Pour on the sauce.  Stir and bake.  That’s it.  So good.  So fast.

And your house will have that heavenly smell of just delivered Chinese food, without the expense.  Without the big tip for a driver.

Pour on your sauce and you’re ready to bake!

The sauce has a hint of Thai.  It can be made thin or thick.  I suggest making enough though.  You’ll want some to pour over a little rice as well to make this a quick meal for any night.  30 minutes in the over and your ready to eat. 

 You know I have to sprinkle a little red pepper flakes too.  And why not add some nutritious sesame seeds to fancy up your

“Faux Stir Fry” ?

    Another clever Angela recipe. Love it! As we have Brunhilda on 24/7 at the moment I might just try this ASAP. Looks delicious and although I love to wrangle with the wok, if I can do this in the oven what else can I do? I already make our spring rolls in the oven, less mess and lots less calories. When are you heading off on holidays?
