Weeknight Stir Fry
Who doesn’t love a good stir fry that everyone will love to have? This one is super simple too, using ground meat and some prepped vegetables to cut down on the chopping time! Use that prepped broccoli slaw, those pre-sliced mushrooms, that bag of shredded carrots, it is convenient and honestly, I couldn’t even chop anywhere close as nicely.
It took my kids some convincing to finally try it, but now they are super fans. Packed with tons of vegetables, you can serve it alongside cauliflower rice, your favorite variety of rice, or a good ole microwave packet. My latest obsession is the Target Coconut Jasmine Rice, it has this beautiful aroma and flavor and the ingredients are simple, perfect in my opinion. I like to mix a little mayo with Sriracha for a spicy drizzle, my youngest even enjoys the heat.
Because this stir fry has so many vegetables, you get a bunch of servings, I LOVE it for lunches and meal prep. Swap things out for what you have in your pantry, I kept it basic and simple because we all need a little help on these crazy nights. With school starting soon, I need as many quick dinners in my back pocket, especially ones that travel well. Sports and activities can eat up your dinnertime so make sure to have easy to eat meals on the go! Bonus is when you serve it with caulirice: this is Whole30, Paleo, low carb, Keto, and naturally gluten free, dairy free, nut free and I give options to make it vegan and vegetarian. Which means, whoever is at the table, they can enjoy this dinner.

I like to get everything ready before I start cooking, because this recipe is quick paced, you will need to have things nearby to throw in.
A visual step-by-step for this one pan meal. I love it because I only have to clean one pan, a cutting board, knife, and our plates. So AWESOME!
