Stir Fried Vegetables with "Prawns"

This is my chef's version* of stir fried vegetables with vegetarian prawns. It's another vegetarian dish which you maybe interested to try also.

1. Broccoli
2. Cauliflower
3. Carrots
4. Yellow Capsicum
5. Vegetarian Prawns (from Friendly Vegetarian)
6. Cooking Oil
7. Salt
8. Vegetarian Oyster Sauce
9. Cornflour, mixed with Water

1. Wash and cut the vegetables (1-4). Rinse the vegetarian prawns.
2. Heat the cooking oil in a wok.
3. Add in a pinch of salt and then the vegetables (1-4). Stir fry the vegetables for ~2 minutes.
4. Add in the cornflour solution and then cover the wok with a lid. Cook over medium flame for ~2 minutes.
5. Add in the vegetarian oyster sauce and the vegetarian prawns.
6. Cook for another ~1-2 minutes and then serve.

*My "rainbow" version of stir fried vegetables uses these ingredients which give the dish a more colourful look:
(1) Broccoli [green]
(2) Cauliflower [white]
(3) Carrots [orange]
(4) Red capsicum [red]
(5) Yellow Capsicum [yellow]
(6) Snow Peas &/or Sugar Peas [green]
(7) Crab Stick &/or Prawns [red]
(8) Shiitake Mushrooms [brown/black]
(9) Egg Toufu [yellow]

If your kids don't like or are picky about eating vegetables, maybe you can try cooking this dish with these colourful ingredients. Hope it helps to appetize them and gives them a more wholesome meal. :)
