Single Lady Stir Fry – Peppers, Onions and Turkey Kielbasa


So, Single Lady Stir Fry is a bit of a misnomer… this recipe is easily made for one (with a nice helping for the next day to reheat).  My husband travels pretty frequently and with the amount of time I spend at work, I have developed a few favorite meals that are quick, easy, low-calorie, and most important of all – tasty.

What is Single Lady Stir Fry?  It’s a stir fry of red pepper, green pepper, yellow pepper, onion and kielbasa.  This recipe can be made to serve two to four.  If you’re serving another side like mashed potatoes or rice, this will serve up to four.

464 Calories per Serving

  • 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 Red Pepper, medium
  • 1 Yellow Pepper, medium
  • 1 Green Pepper, medium
  • 1 White Onion, large (more the merrier)
  • 13 oz, Turkey Kielbasa link (s)
  • 1 teaspoon of Black Pepper
  • 1 dash of Salt
  • 1 teaspoon of Herbs de Provence

Place saute pan on medium heat and add Olive oil and Garlic to pan.  Slice entire Onion intro strips.  Add the onions to the pan.  Let the onion begin to cook and soften.  While that’s cooking, start chopping the peppers into strips.  Add the peppers to the pan and stir with the onions and garlic.  Adjust the heat lower if  the oil starts to burn.

Next, slice the Turkey Kielbasa at an angle.  See below for all of the yumminess together.


Add the Black Pepper, Salt and Herbs de Provence to the pan.  Continue to stir in the sauté pan until the vegetables are softened.  Turn the heat up on the pan to medium-high to caramelize the onions and kielbasa.

Now, Enjoy!

I saved half of the Single Lady Stir Fry for the next day.  To reheat, I microwaved the Single Lady Stir Fry for 1.5 minutes on high – stirred – then heated again on high for 1-1.5 minutes.  Presto!  Two dinners!
