Spicy Squid Stir-Fry

A note from Joelle...
When most people think of eating things like squid and octopus, they do not pull the prettiest of faces. The thing is it's perfectly healthy (if cooked correctly and eaten fresh) and it tastes great!
Here is my spicy squid stir-fry with rice recipe!
I started off my boiling some basmati rice in a rice cooker. It never burns in a profession rice cooker, so I do recommend using one of them. If not, a pan with water is fine.
Prep your vegetables first! I ribboned my carrots, and then chopped up my mushrooms, green chilli, onions, garlic and red pepper. As it is a stir-fry you can use any vegetable you want.
I then cut the squid into thin-ish rings and seasoned with soy sauce and ground white pepper.
Pop the onions, garlic and chilli in first and give it a stir. The aroma is amazing! Then add the rest of the veg. You can also add vegetable stock with a small cup of water to make it less dry.
The squid goes into the pan last because if does not take than long to cook. It you leave it in for too long, it becomes to rubbery and hard to eat. 

My rice was done band on time!

BOOM! We are done! It spicy, but really healthy and tastes great.
