Spring herb and vegetable stir fry - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

As we enter the height of Spring in the southern hemisphere, the new season vegetables and herbs available to us become even better! Stirfries are an incredibly easy way to add lots of colourful and healthy vegetables into our diet and the best part is it uses just one pan to cook a whole meal!

Eating locally grown and in season vegetables reduces environmental footprint but also means what we are eating is as fresh as possible! You can get extra 'local' by growing your owb herbs to add too. A stir fry is great because you can include whatever vegetables you like and what you have on hand!
A very easy and super delicious flavour is honey, soy and garlic. You can spice it up with some chilli and even some seasame seeds at the end. 


  • 1 large wok and a wooden spoon or spatula
  • 2 tablespoons of olive or coconut oil
  • 3 gloves of garlic - Australian grown!
  • Your favourite in-season vegetables - carrots, snow peas, broccoli, beans, cabbage, cauliflower, spring onions, 
  • A mix of herbs - coriander, parsley, stinging nettle (yes!), fresh dandelion leaves, mint, basil, lemongrass.
