Easy Stir Fry
The day after hosting a family gathering I never want to make much for dinner. After looking at a fridge full of this and that leftover from the event, what is there to make? The one thing I am always left with is veggies from the veggie tray. A mix matched hodge podge amounts of random veggies. You know as well as I do that the minis wont finish all of those veggies before they spoil so I use them in a simple and hardy supper, Stir Fry.
- First, this is first: gather your ingredients. Garlic cloves
- Left over veggies
- Meat (optional, I used uncooked chicken left over from our picnic).
- Soy sauce
- a pinch of sugar
I start by mincing (finely chopping) my garlic and getting that heated up in my pan until it’s nice a fragrant.
While my garlic is heating up I dice up my chicken pieces.
Add your diced chicken to the pan with your garlic. I like to add Olive Oil or butter to help with sticking.
As your chicken is cooking chop up your left over veggies. I had cauliflower, carrots, onions, broccoli (which I steamed separate because no one else likes it but me) and I had a bag of string beans in the freezer I wanted to use up.
Once your chicken is fully cooked. Add your veggies. You may need to add a few splashes of water to keep from burning.
When all of your veggies are start to soften you can add your soy sauce. I don’t use measurements because I go by taste. Some people like their stir fry with more sauce than others. I also sprinkle about a teaspoon of white sugar to the mix. Some people also like to use honey instead of sugar. I have done both and I like my stir fry both ways.
