SIMPLE Recipe, & how to make ANY Stir-Fry Clean Eating friendly:
*Use a high quality avocado oil or unrefined coconut oil…just a little goes a long way!
*Use LOTS of your favorite vegetables, 4-6 of your favorites. Buy what is in sale, or in season.
*Chop vegetables as uniformly as possible for best results.
*Always quickly cook your meat (if using) first, then set-aside while cooking veggies.
*Serve over quinoa or brown rice, OR do what I did, and pack the veggies so thick that no grain is required.
Ingredients Mix & Match YOUR veggie faves:
- 2 Tbsps coconut aminos, or Braggs liquid aminos

- Add in the snow peas and continue stir-frying until all vegetables are tender-crisp.
