Vegetable Stir Fry | #UyaisKitchen x #OhahaEats

Last week, I teamed up with Vanessa of Style By Ohaha to create a simple but delicious meal that anyone and I mean anyone can pull off.

And while we prepped and stuff, we had a light but great conversation and for the moment, I missed my friends as they don’t stay in the same state as I. It’s a vision of mine to be able to have light convos over a good meal and a glass of wine some day. And I really missed gisting with Seki while ‘forcing’ her to cut vegetables at my kitchen table (inside joke).

Something about cooking that I love is the process and for me, it reminds me of the way life progresses. It’s a journey.
From the raw ingredients being purchased at the local market or store, to being washed and prepared, to being put together with oils and spices via whatever cooking process chosen and some minutes later, a whole meal ready to be shared is made.

Inasmuch as this is a food post, I’ll be sharing a few nuggets on life too;

  • Life is a journey, so make sure you enjoy it every step of the way.
  • Learn to enjoy the highs and the lows because honestly, life gets dull with only highs.
  • Be kind, don’t use the safety of the screen/ internet to bully people. This has been increasing at an alarming rate recently especially on the streets of twitter.

See what I said about it here.

  1. Gosh I hate vegetables with all my being but I’m trying to start liking them because if I want to live long, they’re kinda necessary. I do love stir fries and discovered my love for them last year, so I’ll definitely attempt your recipe. In the meantime, biko I want to be your photographer for one of your cooking sessions. It’s a dream to photograph a cooking session from pan to plate – do reach out if you’re interested, especially if you’re baking! It’s Pinterest putting all these ideas in my head lol. Keep the dishes coming!
