Ginger Sesame Vegetable Stir Fry

Girl, Stir-Fried is finally posting a stir-fry recipe, hey! I should make a disclaimer that my blog name isn’t because I’m an expert in making stir-fries, I claim no such thing. It’s really just an apt description of my chaotic cooking style (quick and colorful!) and my non-wasteful, veggie-loving food philosophy:  You can seriously make…

Curried Couscous Stuffed Peppers with Apple and Cashews

You should know: I REALLY like curry. A lot. I will curry anything, and couscous seems like the ideal carb to experiment my obsession on. So, this recipe has been knocking around in my brain for a while and I’ve tried a few versions. My last curried couscous had chopped roasted red peppers in it,…

Vegan Sour Cherry, Blueberry and Walnut Crumble Bars

I’m definitely not a baker. Baking involves measuring stuff, and if you realize when it’s in the oven that you messed something up, there’s really nothing you can do to fix it. And, you know, my whole cooking method is just going for it, all in, and then fixing it when I make a terrible…

Garlicky Roasted Cannellini Beans

Warning: This is a really easy-to-make and severely addicting snack. Herbed, roasted beans are one of the ways I cure cravings for potato chips and other salty bad things. The fact that it’s cheaper to make and more sustaining than the potato-chip alternative is a little added motivation 🙂 I made these yesterday with the…

All Green, All the Time Power Pasta

Today is Friday, which means most of you are like yay weekend! Personally I will be getting up at 5am tomorrow morning to work a stall at the farmers market, so my Friday night plans involve going to bed at an embarrassingly early hour. It’s ok though, my stall is conveniently located right next to…

Pear, Beet and Walnut Summer Salad

Beets! I love beets! Probably more than the average person, at least. They always remind me of my mom, who would boil them on the stove during summer and was always stoked about them. I thought they were gross back then, but you know, mother is always right in the end (Hi mummy are you…

Beet Greens Pesto

Here’s the first essential fact of the day:  You can make vegan pesto out of any combination of greens and nuts. I do roughly 4 parts green to one part nuts and one part olive oil. I also usually throw in some nutritional yeast and a garlic clove, but those aren’t even necessary. 4 parts…

Black Bean and Corn Salad-Dip

I call this a salad-dip because it’s a salad that screams at you to scoop it with tortilla chips. It’s a great summer snack or light lunch, and easily pack-able for work or for picnics or whatever. Actually, screw work, make a big batch of this and a sizable margarita and go sit in the…

Basil, Chile and Garlic Vinegar

One day I found a book in a used book store on small-batch preserving, and it was only $10 so I thought, hell yes, fun with jam and pickling. Turns out there’s a bunch of recipes in the back for making specialty vinegars. When you shove salad in your mouth every day like I do,…

Quinoa, Black Bean and Butternut Squash Salad 

Oh look, my first post! I’ll try not to screw it up by starting with something easy that I like to make for lunch. I’m big into lunch foods because… Well, if you’ve ever worked a 9-5 I’m sure you understand how big of a difference lunch makes in your day. And, if you’ve ever…
