I love making stir-fries for dinner. It gives me a chance to use up some of those veggies in the refrigerator that I’ve been meaning to find a recipe for.
The great thing about stir-fries is that they are so versatile and you can use so many different vegetables. Adding noodles or rice makes them even more filling and hearty.
Some of the things I like to add to stir-fries are:
- bell peppers (red, yellow, green)
- baby corn
- water chestnuts
- so much more!
