Stir It Up!

Ah, the mid-week slump: so we meet again. Rather than conquering dinner by ordering take-out or driving to the nearest restaurant, try making a meal that’s simple, yet satisfying; flavorful, yet fast: stir-fry. When it comes to dinner, a stir-fry pan is basically a blank canvas. You can throw together nearly any combination of veggies and protein with a delicious sauce, spoon it over rice or noodles and call it a meal. There is no reason why the mid-week slump should have you feeling scared of stir-fry, but if you’re lacking a little in the creativity department, we’ve happily picked out some of our favorite stir-fry recipes for you:

 

Chicken and Eggplant Stir-Fry

 

Pork & Broccoli Stir-Fry

 

Tofu & Veggie Stir-Fry

 

Shrimp & Snap Pea Stir-Fry
