Stir fry is a traditional Chinese cooking technique where vegetables or meat are “fried” or sauteed in a wok, using just a small amount of hot oil and stirred constantly. This method of cooking has spread beyond China, as it is a fast, easy, and healthy way to cook meals.
Since this type of cooking requires a fairly minimal amount of oil, the fat content stays low. Additionally, the vegetables retain more nutrients than if they were boiled in water. Topped with herbs, spices, or sauces, this type of meal can satisfy almost any type of eater.
This stir fry doesn’t use any of the traditional soy sauce, and is thus, healthier for people watching their sodium intake. If you don’t have a wok, you can use a very large pan– the results will be the same!
