EASY SWEET PEANUT STIR FRY

FacebookPinterestTwitterGoogle+PrintFriendly

This stir fry is both quick and easy.  Perfect for a busy night.  We have a few ‘meatless meals’ at our house every week.  One of our favorites is stir fry.  In an effort to not get sick of eating the same thing week after week I created this sweet peanut stir fry. The sweet creaminess of the peanut butter is a nice change from the regular soy sauce based sauces I usually make. If you are worried about it being too sweet try leaving out the brown sugar or adding a little more soy sauce.  You can add any vegetables you have on hand, that’s how I always decide what to put in my stir fry.  Give it a try and let your taste-buds go wild.
