I feel like stir fry might be every parents perfectly easy, healthy, filling go to meal on a busy night. I know I make it when I’ve run out of ideas on what to make for dinner.
Stir fry is not an actual dish however, it is actually a cooking techniques used. Developed in China stir frying was used to cooking foods in a wok with very hot oil. Essentially deep frying with out the batter and the “deep” part lol!
Stir fry is super versatile too because the ingredient lists can include just about anything. A few of my favorite stir fry ingredients are onions, bell peppers, water chestnuts, baby corn, pea pods, zucchini, and carrots. So many great ways to change up the recipe!
