This easy stir-fry is a great healthy dinner for one. Make it your own by choosing between beef and chicken. Vegetarian? Skip the meat altogether, or sub in tofu.

I quadrupled the recipe to feed my whole family - didn’t look the right color ;) but tasted pretty good - we added more soy sauce for more flavor.
