Stir-fries are a great way of getting things done without adding a lot of oil. I’m personally not a fan of greasy food so me and stir-fries are best buddies 🙂 This vegetable stir-fry will work well as an accompaniment to any of your favourite dishes. It also can be a meal on it’s own with some lean meat such as chicken or fish for your protein source then maybe some potatoes or something as your starch.

Here I just used carrots, peppers, green beans, sugar snaps and onions. You can use any vegetables you desire. Just be sure to add them according to their readiness to get done! In other words, vegetables that take a bit longer to be cooked go in first. Okay, let’s get started.

Quick Instructions

    1/4 large  red pepper, cut into julienne strips
