A stir fry is a great one-dish meal to whip up at any time of the year, but I grow especially fond of them in the fall and winter months. They’re extremely simple, quick and easy to adjust to your personal taste buds, plus they’re nice and warm for when you come in from the cold. You can add in whatever veggies you like, change up the meat from shrimp to beef or chicken, or add in extra flavours if you like your dishes more/less spicy or sweet.

Or, of course, you could just follow this exact recipe and enjoy the flavourful concoction I’ve come to swear by! The sauce is irresistible and when you’re hungry it’s an extremely quick fix since it only takes about 15-20 minutes to make. Enjoy!
