橄榄油时蔬炒面

配料:面条(也可以用意大利面), 猪肉或者牛肉切片或条儿(喜欢全素可以不放),100克西兰花,1颗娃娃菜或者2,3颗小白菜,切块。1根胡萝卜切丝,2杯嫩菠菜叶,半个小洋葱切丝,1汤匙捣碎的蒜泥和姜泥。

调料:5汤匙橄榄油(或其它食用油),1/2茶匙盐,1/2茶匙白胡椒粉,1/2茶匙糖,1/2茶匙鸡精,2汤匙酱油,1茶匙香油(麻油),1/4杯水。

做法:

1. 把西兰花用加了盐和油的热水焯一下备用。

2. 再用煮西兰花的水把面煮熟,然后将热水滤掉,加入凉水,放一边备用。

3. 用中火把肉炒熟,然后加入蒜泥姜泥,接着再炒半分钟。加入酱油,炒匀。

4. 加入洋葱和胡萝卜,炒到微微变软。

5. 把煮好备用的面条,娃娃菜/小白菜/焯过的西兰花加进来一起翻炒,并用盐,白胡椒粉,糖,鸡精和水调味并翻炒均匀。等水分差不多快要吸收干的时候关火。

6. 加入菠菜叶,快速翻炒几下,和面条蔬菜一起拌匀即可。

7. 加几滴香油,拌匀,马上装盘。

小贴士:

  • 如果家里有杵子,可以用来将蒜和姜捣碎,这样面条就更入味。
  • 喜欢的话可以加些醋。
  • 如果不放洋葱,可以再多加一点点糖,以平衡蔬菜的涩味。

  2. Such a fresh and flavorful dish. I haven’t had broccoli in too long. I tend to eat less of it in the summer with all the other fresh produce and it’s so great.
