Last week while my family was away, I prepared quick meals for myself. One of my favorites was a stir fry using the organic vegetables from my garden. Since my garden is small and things are coming available at different times and there isn’t enough to feed my whole family, it worked perfect to use my little harvests every couple of days.

I don’t have an exact recipe; that is a the beauty of a stir fry, you can use whatever you have on hand.

First, chop up your veggies and get everything ready…stir fry moves fast and you need to be prepared. If you are using meat, either cook it quick in the pan before stir frying or use leftovers from the fridge/freezer.

Next, I like to get my skillet or wok nice an hot with either olive or grapeseed oil. Saute the onions and carrots; I like to throw in some chopped garlic towards the end. When those veggies are getting softer, throw in the rest of the veggies that don’t take as long to cook. I like to add some chicken broth or even water to the pan to get a little steam going. Keep the veggies moving to cook evenly. When they are getting close to being to your liking; throw in the meat and add whatever sauce you like. I used San-J Teriyaki…it is gluten free and non-gmo. Keep stir frying until everything is hot and cooked to your desired tenderness. Enjoy by itself or over cooked rice or quinoa. Delicious and nutritious!
