Sesame Almond Stir Fry

Stir-fried dishes are my go-to for busy days. They are so quick and easy to throw together and can feature whatever ingredients you have on hand. In this post, I’m going to share with you a few tips to save even more time!

First, grab a package of coleslaw mix or broccoli slaw mix to avoid having to spend a lot of time chopping veggies. You can also pre-chop veggies during the weekend or on a slow day to have already prepped during the week.

Second, pre-cook some meat, if desired, to quickly add to your stir fry. I like to make my Roasted Chicken and have chicken already shredded for soups, stir fry, enchiladas, etc.

Third, use a variety of flavors for spices and sauces. Here’s a few options: ginger, chili powder, cilantro, coconut aminos, paprika, cumin, fish sauce, tahini, peanut/almond butter, rice vinegar, etc.

Now, on to the featured recipe!
