Stir fry made easy! #foodfriday

Making a stir fry is pretty easy. The combinations are customizable based on your family’s preference and there are plenty of opportunities to sneak in some new flavors. We believe in recipes that can be changed based on your tastes. No two families are alike, so feel free to change the items listed below to your favorites.

Simply Stir Fry

One bundle of broccoli, cleaned and cut**

2 large carrots, julienned

1 cup of mung beans

1/2 cup thinly sliced red pepper

1 onion, chopped

1 tablespoon garlic, minced

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated on a microplane

1/2 – 1 cup pineapple

1/2 cup tofu, cut into 1/2″ pieces

Rice of your choice

Sesame oil

3 tablespoons soy sauce (to your taste)

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

 

Cook rice as instructed on package. Note that brown rice cooks longer than white rice. If you are using brown rice, then begin cutting/prepping your vegetables after you put the rice in. If you are using white rice, then all vegetables should be prepped in advance.

Heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli, carrots and onion until slightly tender, about 3-4 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine the soy sauce, ginger, and rice vinegar. Add the garlic to the vegetables and cook for another 1 minute. Add the pineapple, mung beans, tofu, and the sauce and stir until heated through.  Add the rice to combine or serve separately.

Enjoy!

Need a little more flavor? Consider adding some of these items:

  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Sriracha sauce
  • Water chestnuts
  • Radishes
  • Grapes
  • Shrimp, chicken or beef
  • Brown sugar or honey

**To trim broccoli – remove the florets of the head into bite sized pieces. The stalk is edible, but the peel must be removed. Using a potato peeler or knife, cut off the woody exterior of the stalk and then slice into pieces.
