Stir fry is a super easy meal to make. It’s fast and uses one pan to cook everything so is ideal for a midweek meal when you don’t have the energy to be in the kitchen for hours. It’s also one of the healthiest meals as it can be packed full of veg, along with some healthy protein. You can swap or add any veg to your preference.
