Veggie Stir Fry

Becoming Vegan was pretty easy for me.  I have always loved vegetables — I was one of those strange kids would would rather eat a salad than most anything else.  As an adult, I have extended my menu beyond the salad into Veggie Stir Fry amongst other veggie dishes.

Veggie Stir Fry is easy to make and does not need any special ingredients!  Usually, I just use what veggies I have on hand.  However, I will list my basic recipe:

This recipe is very versatile because you can add any vegetables you have in your refrigerator and pantry.  Some of the other veggies I have used:

  • Sliced Mushooms
  • Summer squash
  • Bell Peppers
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli
  • ??????

Sometimes, I have even added pre-cooked beans and/or lentils to add more protein.

Now, how is that for an easy nutritious dish?
