Lots of Veggies Stir Fry

Somehow, I ended up with a lot of stir fry vegetables this week. Between what I got in our CSA box, what came out of our garden, and what I overbought at the grocery store last week, I had a nice variety of colorful goodness to put into the wok. I also had a lime that wasn’t going to make it much longer, so decided to make a lime based sauce.

Lime and Chli Garlic Sauce Stir Fry

This was pretty spicy. If you want less heat, cut back on the chili garlic sauce. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have on hand. Broccoli would have been great in this. I ended up with a total of about 8 cups of vegetables.

    Hi Ruth,
    I am going to try this recipe. However I am doing the low carb diet, and don’t want white rice. I know I could try brown rice, but I’m thinking quinoa. Do you think it would work?

      Absolutely, Anna! I would give up eating white rice in a heartbeat, but my husband would fuss. I try to keep some 1/2 cup portions cooked brown rice in the freezer, but am not always successful.
