Stir-fries are one of my favorite things to cook because they are so darn quick and easy!
When I’m pressed for time, I simply chop up a whole bunch of veggies and throw them into a pan with a protein (shrimp, chicken, beef or tofu) and a little seasoning for a quick and easy dinner.
For this stir fry, I used the seasoning from the marinated protein (tamari, ginger and garlic).
Cooking doesn’t get much quicker or easier than this.
Try the recipe below and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
- 1 tbsp. organic sesame or peanut oil
- 1 red onion, peeled and sliced into thin crescents
- 4-5 shitake mushrooms (discard stems), sliced thin
- 2 tbsp. chicken stock (or other stock)
- 1 cup broccoli florets
- 8 oz tofu, shrimp, chicken, beef or duck (marinated in 2 tbsp. shoyu or tamari with 1 garlic clove minced and 1 tsp. minced ginger)
- ½ red pepper, seeded and sliced thin
- ½ cup snow peas
- ¼ cup cilantro
- 2 cups brown rice (pre-cooked)
- In a frying pan or wok, heat oil on medium/high.
- Add onion and mushrooms and saute 1-2 minutes.
- Add broccoli plus chicken stock and cook 1-2 minutes.
- Add snow peas, and marinated protein PLUS the marinade and cook 2-3 minutes.
- Finish with cilantro.
- Toss rice into wok and combine with stir fry.
