Goats Cheese & Stir Fry Vegetables

After 4 weeks of indulging in lots of good food I felt a need to make something with a bit more vegetables! Lets get back to the low carb and healthy life..

This was quick and easy to throw together and had lots of rich flavours.

I fried off some bacon first, removed it and then added in the shallots so they’d cook in the bacon drippings (yes, I still think this is healthy!) And utterly tasty, it wasn’t too much so I don’t feel bad at all!, I added the courgettes to this to soak up all the remaining drippings.

I added the other veg then cooked til it was tender to my liking, popped in the goats cheese and let it melt over the heat for a few minutes before plating up. Then toss in the bacon!

Goats Cheese and Stir-fry Veg

I added a slice of prosciutto on top and served with olives on the side for a real mediterranean feel.

I really love the combination of goats cheese and red peppers, they work very well together.

I didn’t really measure things so I’ve just given estimates in the recipe. Try it with other veggies and let me know what you think.

Happy Eating,

Chicabella

  4. Cook til you are happy with the tenderness of the vegetables. Add in the goats cheese (cut up into chunks).
