During the hot summer months when I don’t feel much like cooking, stir-fry is a great and thrifty way to use up left-overs.
I start with any cooked meat I have and add in left-over, frozen or fresh vegetables. Sometimes if there isn’t a lot of meat, I’ll also throw in some nuts like peanuts or cashews.
I’ll even throw in onions and peppers if I’m feeling brave!
Once all the vegetables are cooked and the meat is heated, I pour the sauce over and cook until it is thick.
Stir Fry Sauce:
Mix together 2 Tablespoons corn starch, 2 Tablespoons soy sauce, 2/3 cup water, 1 tsp. ground ginger, 1 tsp. garlic, and 1/2 tsp. pepper.
If there isn’t enough sauce, I just make another batch and throw it on and cook a little longer!
It’s a delicious and light summer meal that my family loves. Well, not all of them. One child would rather have a root canal then eat anything with lots of weird vegetables mixed up together. I always serve this with bread and a salad so when he has eaten his allotted portion he can fill up with those!
Ahh, the joys of motherhood!
