The best thing about this quick, yummy & healthy stir fry recipe is there’s no measuring! Grab your favorite veggies, some “special sauce” a few peanuts as garnish & your chopsticks!  It only takes about 15 minutes to make.  Served with a side of brown rice and you can eat as much as you like. You won’t find a much healthier version.  The sauce used is made by Panda Express (yep, the fantastic restaurant!) You can buy it in many stores. It comes in a variety of flavors. Kung Pao was used with this one and it’s zero fat which doesn’t hurt!

Another healthy recipe that would complement this wonderful dish is our Baked Egg Rolls and for dessert some Healthy No Bake Cookies!

Zojirushi Rice Cooker aWe use brown rice with our stir fry as it’s one of  the healthier types. It does, however, take a long time to cook. If you cook rice regularly as we do it pays to invest in a Zojirushi rice cooker. This little machine is one of my best and most time saving purchases and it cooks rice PERFECT every time!

All you do is place your rice and water into the cooker, close the lid and turn it on. It’s hands off cooking and it alerts you with a little Melody when the rice is done. It will keep it warm until you’re ready to use it!blank630x20

PROS

  • Cooks rice perfect every time.
  • Very easy cleanup with non-stick removable container.
  • Hands off cooking.
  • Alerts when completed.
  • Keeps Rice Warm.
  • Retractable Cord
  • Carry Handle

CONS

  • Pricey. However, you definitely get what you pay for in this case. We’ve had ours for 6 years and its going strong.
