Today’s recipe post features a vegetable stir fry that can easily be put together in 15 minutes. Perfect for last-minute dinners or easy weeknight cooking!
Making a vegetable stir fry is great for those times when you: A) have left over vegetables in your fridge and don’t know what to do with them, B) need a quick and easy weeknight dinner, and C) don’t feel like cooking but still want a healthy, nourishing meal.
Although I’ve listed the vegetables that I used in this stir-fry, feel free to substitute or add any other veggies that you like or need to use up! Some ideas are: cabbage, zucchini, cauliflower, eggplant, or some leafy greens thrown in right at the very end. You can get really creative with this process and have a different mix of flavours every time. No two stir fries are ever the same!
Stir fries also go well with a variety of grains including quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, and brown rice. You can also pair it with noodles, however be sure to avoid the highly processed varieties.
Overall, stir fries make a great addition to your weekly meal rotation, and I encourage you to try it sometime this week. Enjoy!
