i’m pretty sure this post took me longer to write up than making this dish for dinner tonight.

an “it’s on sale” stir-fry

stirfry stirfry2


directions: go to your local grocery store and see what veggies (and meats, if you want to add some protein in there) are on sale for the day. stir-fry them together in a wok with soy sauce, oyster sauce, fish oil, minced garlic, and red pepper flakes. even just soy sauce and terriyaki sauce work well together (which is what i did with the eggplant and bok choy stir-fry, pictured above) and give it plenty of flavour.

you can also make a variation of this recipe and call it an “it’s about to expire” stir-fry by using up all the veggies in your fridge before they go bad.
