This week it’s all about quick dinners. And this stir-fry is no exception. The beauty of this recipe is that you can substitute in what you have on hand. I made my portion vegetarian with edamame while Big Guy enjoyed the addition of chicken. Additionally, instead of carrots I went with sliced red bell pepper. If you don’t use the chicken, dinner will be ready in under 15 minutes. I served our Spring Stir-Fry over white rice.
I almost didn’t get green onions at the store but I’m so glad I did! The freshness really brightens up the dish. Also, I didn’t come armed with an intense grocery list. Who knew I was out of soy sauce (tamari)? I sure didn’t. Fish sauce came to the rescue. Seriously – don’t freak out if you’re missing an ingredient. There is almost always a substitution. Have fun in the kitchen! Don’t make cooking dinner a chore.
The calorie count is rather low for this dish (without the rice) as a dinner – so if you’re not into rice, you might want to double your portion or add another starch.
