Asian Vegetable Stir Fry

We absolutely love this dish when we’re looking for something light and healthy for dinner. I serve it up with a little bit of grilled chicken for a complete meal.

    Hey thanks for your recipe. I loved it to bits. Never cooked it with water before. I’ve only ever used oil in my stir-fries. I have to say your way gives the veggies more taste. Thanks again. Peter in New Zealand
