This quick stir fry is my go-to meal when I just do not know what to make and don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I whip this up in 15 minutes and throw in whatever vegetables I have in the fridge to fill out the dish. You can serve it over brown or black rice or, if you don’t want to wait around for rice to cook, just serve by itself since it is really just a big pan of tasty cooked vegetables.
