A simple yet delicious stir fry recipe for the lazy evenings/afternoons!

I was making my Crispy Tempeh Skewers with Peanut Sauce and wanted a light and healthy side dish to go with it – what better than babycorn and pak choi.

I love pak choi in stir fries as you get the bite of the lower stem but you also get your juicy leafy greens from the top part. It also has a light flavour which goes perfectly with with sweetness from the babycorn, sesame and garlic!

You can enjoy this as a side dish, or double up and have it as a main. If you have it in your kitchen, you can throw some tofu in there too to bulk it out a little πŸ™‚

I used by the vegetarian stir-fry sauce by Lee Kum Kee which you can find in most big supermarkets. It has a strong soy and mushroom flavour which is perfect for stir fries, dipping sauces and glazes.
