Sweet & Sour Vegetables

Wednesday, January 24, 2018


Eating vegan is doing away with food containing animal products but has its benefits. It can help you lose excess weight, and it can be higher in nutrients, and is also linked with lower heart disease and lowering risks of certain cancers.

Enjoy this vegan dish with your family. You don’t have to tell them it’s vegan, just delicious and nutritious. ;-)


2 lbs or 908 grams garden vegetable mix 
1/4 cup brown sugar 
¼ cup cornflour 
3 tbsp wine vinegar 
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated 
1 clove garlic, crushed 
4 tbsp tomato ketchup 
1 onion, sliced into rings 
300 grams pineapple tidbits 
1 leek, thickly sliced 
2 bell peppers, sliced



Prepare the sauce by mixing sugar, cornflour, vinegar, ginger, garlic, and tomato ketchup in a bowl.

Saute onion, leeks and bell pepper for 1 to 2 minutes. Add your garden vegetables and stir-fry until cooked, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add the sauce mixture and pineapples and cook until thick - a couple of minutes. Serve with organic brown rice for a more nourishing and satisfying meal.
