Dinner is typically a drag in our house. Come five o'clock I do not feel like cooking for anyone. Stirfries tend to be a go to dish because they are quick, easy, plus filled with protein and vegetables. When served over a whole grain like brown rice, quinoa or farro it is the complete package!
With little prep work you can have this dish done in 15-30 minutes start to finish. AND it is a dish that will please all the picky eaters in your house. While you are at it, save some money on takeout night and make your own fake out dish! It is healthier and way tastier!
