3 Delicious Autumn Stir-fry Recipes

As the seasons change, often so do our menus. Whilst summer saw BBQs and salads galore as we aimed to slim and trim for the perfect beach body, in autumn we love something a little more hearty and warming. Bliss believes that this doesn't have to mean eating unhealthily. For us, autumn recipes should include plenty of in-season veggies to warm us whilst keeping our waistlines happy. With that in mind, check out our favourite autumn recipes, all of which can be adapted for vegetarians.

1. Beef and Ginger Noodle Stir-Fry - serves 4
Ingredients
 500g diced steak
2 tablespoons of peanut oil
400g singapore noodles
5cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped into matchsticks
2 red chillies, thinly sliced diaganolly
200g fresh shiitake mushrooms, halved
200g baby button mushrooms, halved
1 bunch of kale, leaves only, chopped
80g oyster sauce
Lime wedges to serve
 .
Method
Cook noddles according to packet instructions. Meanwhile, heat a wok or frying pan over a high heat and add peanut oil. Add chilli and garlic and stir fry for one minute. Add the beef and stir-fry until browned. Add the shiitake mushrooms and cook for 2 mins. Add the baby button mushrooms and kale, and stir fry until vegetables are tender. Drain noodles and add them along with the oyster sauce. Stir-fry until heated through and serve with lime wedges. 
For a vegetarian version, replace the beef with one diced red onion and one diced green pepper, to be added with the shiitake mushrooms.
