Stir Fry and Apple Pie** (oooh! that rhymes!)

Yesterday was full of wonderful food. My guy and I decided to stir fry it up.

Deliciously Fresh Stir Fry:

We used a bit of sesame oil in a wok, and added some freshly minced ginger and lemon grass stalks for flavour.

To make sure we hit up our daily green veggies, we added a lot of:
broccoli
sui choy cabbage

We also added:
carrots (sliced and shredded!)
mushrooms
bean sprouts

I added a bit more sesame oil throughout (2 tsp in total), along with some water. When it was almost done cooking, I added 1 more tsp of toasted sesame oil this time, as well as some cayenne, some lemon zest and a few squeezes of lemon juice, as well as one of my all time FAVOURITE MACROBIOTIC seasonings: umeboshi vinegar! We ate it served over ample short grain brown rice--macrobiotic approved!

Voila! Lovely dinner!

I also had a FABULOUS dessert. A spur of the moment creation that will definitely be repeated:

**Apple Pie a la mode (aka: apple oat bran topped with coconut milk icecream)


To make:
Dice an apple, and throw it in a pan with about ~1.5-2 cups water and a pinch of sea salt. Bring to boil and let boil for around 4ish minutes. Add in ~1/3 - ~1/2 c. of oat bran, and maybe 1/4 c. rolled oats. Let it boil for a few minutes, then let simmer until thickened to your liking! Near the end add in a bit of sweetener if you like (I added in 1 tsp of brown rice syrup). Pour into a beautiful bowl, and let it cool for a moment.Top with cinnamon....and So Delicious coconut milk icecream (dairy free, and sweetened with agave). Then try not to cry from sheer joy (because it truly is that good) :)
