Stir-Fried Turnip, Cabbage & Mushrooms

The star of this dish is the stir-fried vegetables. The protein and carbohydrate sources can be switched around to suit your likes and requirements. Bare in mind though that the vegetables are quite dry, so you may need to add some moisture or flavouring to it. Next time I make it I think I will cook the rice in stock rather than plain water, as it felt like it was just lacking in something. It really doesn’t matter what protein source you choose to use with this, for ease you could simply dice up some chicken breast and add it to the vegetables when you add the turnip. Play around and put your own interpretation on the dish. Its just a really quick and simple recipe, great for when you don’t have much time.
