Super Simple Stir-Fry
Who doesn’t love a good stir-fry?
I gotta admit, I kind forgot about trusty-ol’ stir-frys.
We used to have them a lot growing up.
And now, as a mom myself, I can see why.
They fit the dinner-bill in so many helpful ways:
- Great for when I have a fridge of random veggies and tofu or some meat, (even last nights’ supper) and,
Like soups, stir-frys can be a great way to get in a load of veggies, some healthy carbs and protein.
I typically serve mine with brown rice (side note: have you tried the brown rice THAT COOKS LIKE PASTA?)
Oh man. It’s spectacular.
Anywho, I was recently reminded of all the wonderfulness that is a simple stir-fry with a client.
I was prepping for a client in-home cooking visit.
And along with:
I thought stir-fry would fit perfectly with this client’s needs too (fast, fat-burning meals.)
The stir-fry was a hit and I’ve been using it in my own weekly recipe rotation since then.
Feel free to make it your own! So many veggie/protein/carb combinations out there.
I’ve been using firm or extra firm tofu lately too because I’m doing more flexitarian-style and/or meat-free choices.
Either way, when you need supper on the table tout suite, a Super Simple Stir-Fry can be your best friend 🙂
