Could any of you great cooks help me (a novice) please? I have been trying to cook from scratch, and tried stir frying chopped greens, beans, peppers, edamame beans, etc. For a bit extra flavour and protein I have added 1/3rd can of Asda Taco Beans, which is tasty but carby, plus a little copped garlic. I eat it with a dollop of Longley Farm Cottage cheese and it is delicious, I’m surprised to say. I am trying to keep carbs fairly low as trying to reverse diabetes.
I want to add that taco flavour and sauce without the beans, sometimes. I don’t know what/how much to add as flavouring to get similar taste to the Taco beans. Concerned chilli may be too hot. I do not like really hot spicy food, just a little tasty.
I have also tried adding a bit of tin of Ratatouille which was quite nice, but needs a small extra kick.
Are frozen peppers OK in stir fry, or the bottled ones?
I wondered about stirring in a bit of cream or Greek yoghurt at the end, and adding a few cashews.
I am trying to totally change what I eat, never used to eat greens etc and now trying to make them a main dish (being veggie).
Any other shortcuts/ideas/easy ingredients welcome please. Thanks
