By Gretel H. Schueller, July 1, 2013 - 10:41am
Stir-frying is one of the quickest and most versatile ways to make a fast dinner loaded with vegetables. This healthy high-heat method of searing meats and vegetables with just a little oil is usually associated with Asian cooking, but you can use plenty of other flavors as well. The core elements of any stir-fry are fresh veggies, a bit of protein, such as meat, poultry, seafood, tofu or nuts, a few staple spices and sauces. You can make them from what’s in your kitchen: onions, frozen peas and chicken breasts? Sounds great! The combinations are endless.
Stir-fries make delicious one-dish main courses or you can even stir-fry your favorite vegetables for a great side dish (a terrific way to use up any leftover veggies in your refrigerator). Learn how to master a quick stir-fry with these 4 cooking tips.
