Did You Know?...
I love stir fries, both for their ease and nutritional value.
Some will look at the tablespoon of oil in the recipe and gasp, but a bit of high quality oil is good for you and besides, this recipe serves 4 so you aren't getting much oil per serving anyway.
The list of vegetables you use can change to suit your taste.
I always tell people that most recipes (not baking so much, but cooking) are suggestions.
To some degree, once you are a bit familiar with cooking, you can add and subtract a bit and still come out with something wonderful.
So if you are a fan lots of peppers in your stir fried vegetables, go for it. A rainbow of pepper colors would look and taste wonderful.
If there is a vegetable I list here that you don't really like, simply leave it out and replace it with more of something you do like.
You can serve this vegetable stir fry as the main course or on the side with something like our cashew chicken recipe.
