Spaghetti with a plenty of fresh vegetables (ginger, garlic, onions, mushrooms, and color bell peppers) is very easy to create. It makes a healthy meal for all ages.
Spaghetti –Italian origin, long and cylindrical in shape, thicker than noodles, made of wheat flour and water, and eaten with forks.
Noodles -Originated in China, thin, long and cylindrical in shape, made of different ingredients, traditionally eaten with chopsticks.
- 4 cups of Boiled Spaghetti
- 1/2 inch piece of Ginger
- 1 to 2 Garlic Cloves (finely chopped)
- 1/2 to 1 medium Red Onions
- 1 cup Mushrooms (sliced) 🍄
- 2 to 3 cups Color Bell Pepper/Capsicum (juliennes) 🫑
- 1 cup Homemade Paneer (cubes)
- 2 tbsps. Soy Sauce (low sodium)
- 1 tbsp. Sriracha
- 1 tsp. White Vinegar (optional)
- 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper Powder
- 1/2 tsp. Pink Salt
- (as we are using Soy Sauce in the recipe)
- 1 to 2 tsps. Olive Oil (for stir frying)
Start stir-frying the nicely washed and dried mushrooms in olive oil, on a high heat.
Cook until half-done and golden brown.
Transfer the mushrooms to a separate bowl.
Use the same pan to stir-fry ginger, garlic, onions, and the color bell peppers.
Transfer the bell peppers to a bowl and set aside for later use in this recipe.
Turn off the heat and gently season the homemade paneer with some spices (red chili powder).
Boiled, rinsed (w/cold drinking water), and nicely drained spaghetti.
Finally, take the portions of all veggies and spaghetti (ready to use in the recipe) on a hot non-stick pan. Start adding the soy sauce, Sriracha, pepper, and salt. Stir them together on high heat and serve immediately!
Though we can start stir frying the vegetables and spaghetti one after another but I have kept the veggies separately. Reason being everyone in my family has a personal preference of veggies and their quantities. Also less or more soy sauce/Sriracha.
The above method makes me free from the kitchen and let all family members having some fun cooking
Here, we can add or skip any vegetables of our own preference. Broccoli, carrots, zucchini, snow peas, sprouts, green onions, and cabbage are some of my other favorite veggies
Thin Spaghetti (that has been used in this recipe)
Soy Sauce, Sriracha, Vinegar, Black Pepper, and Pink Salt.
Usually, I prepare a tiny bowl of white vinegar, with a finely chopped green chili, and salt. Adding a bit of this vinegar and chili takes the flavors to another level.
