Mid-week Stirfry (Vege option)

Picture this: it’s a weekday evening, you’re hungry, and you can’t be bothered cooking.. WAIT! You can make a healthy dinner super quick!

This mid-week stirfry is sooo easy and delicious, it even got the tick of approval from the other half (who is obsessed with burgers and pizza!).

I made this one with beef, but you can sub it with anything – chicken, pork, tofu, etc etc

(Serves 2 plus maybe leftovers for lunch)

  • 300g beef schnitzel
  • 1/4 purple cabbage
  • 1 capsicum
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 courgette
  • 1 kumara
  • handful spinach
  • Soy sauce/tamari sauce/coconut aminos – to taste


  1. Cube the kumara, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper, and roast at 180C while you cook everything else (20-30 mins or until soft)
  2. Thinly slice the rest of the veges and meat/whatever
  3. Pan fry your protein of choice on a high heat with a little oil (I use coconut), then remove and set aside
  4. Add the capsicum, carrot and courgette, fry on a medium-high heat with more oil if needed
  5. When the veges have softened, add the cabbage and sauce, continue cooking for 5 minutes
  6. Add the spinach, kumara, protein and a bit more sauce (if needed) at the very end


Enjoy 🙂
