Recipe: Vegtable Stir Fry

Here is a quick and simple meal I threw together last night. It went over much better then I expected! You never know how new foods will go over over with little ones, but I did some things to help make it more appealing. I used corn spaghetti noodles-which they love, and I used vegetables they were familiar with. It really is beautiful with all the colors- I really wish I had taken a photo so you could see!

With this stir fry, I gave the girls some tuna fish (made with canola mayo and chopped up celery), and some black beans. For Mara, I just added the black beans into the stir fry and she ate it all up!


  • 1-2 carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 cup broccoli
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 1/4 cup green beans
  • 1/4 cup corn
  • 1-2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp alternative bread crumbs (I used Orgran's All Purpose Crumbs)
  • corn spaghetti, or any other alternative pasta

Cook pasta as directed. In a wok or frying pan, add the canola oil and carrots. Cook for a few minutes to soften the carrots, and then add the rest of the vegetables. As the vegetables begin to soften, add salt and pepper to taste. When pasta is finished cooking, add it into the vegetable mix. Add the basil, and then the bread crumbs. With the bread crumbs, I just added a bit at a time, stirring and adding until noodles were completely coated.

Very simple and delicious!

Hi Julie, thanks for stopping by my blog! I am already getting some good ideas from yours. I have not seen corn pasta yet, just rice. Also, what brand of mayo do you buy? I have heard of canola mayo, does it contain NO soybean oil? Is that the name on the label?

The canola mayo we use is by Spectrum, and there is no soy in it at all. Mara reacts the most to soy, and had no problems with it at all. Here's a link with more info on it:
You just have to make sure it's the regular canola mayo and not the light, which does have soy in it! We used to use Safflower mayo, but I do like the taste of the canola mayo much better-it's much more subtle.

The corn spaghetti is great, and we like it so much better then rice for it's texture. It's the most like wheat pasta that we have found. We use Mrs. Leepers brand, which you can buy in bulk through
Hope that helps!

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

It was on the newspaper when he saw the watch again. How time flies! 50 years had passed since he saw it the last time. He never stopped finding it during the 50 years. He was too old to remember too many things. However, everything about her was still engraved in his mind and never disappeared.[url=]replica maurice lacroix watches[/url] [url=]handbags Prada[/url] [url=]gucci sunglasses[/url] It values at $235,000.
