Quick and Easy Stir Fry

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.
