Stir fry is a great way to make a “one pot” meal with tons of veggies, meat, and other goodies. This recipe originated as a stir fry classic, but adds mushrooms and bell peppers, along with a sauce that has just a touch of heat and sweetness. Another benefit is that they take very little time to make – except perhaps a little time marinating, the cooking time is literally minutes.
Usually, when you glance through your typical Asian restaurant menu, most dishes come with either noodles or rice…and all too often if you ask for them to “hold the noodles,” you end up with a meal that is about half the size it should be (because those noodles are a cheap filler), but for the same price. That certainly is one of the downfalls (and there aren’t many) of a grain-free diet – unless you’ve found a place that will actually increase the rest of the food in your meal to give you what you’re paying for.
Another option is to make your favorite Asian-inspired meals at home (we’ve got more than a few on the site). And by making them at home, you can also have your noodles if you want. Just a slightly different kind. So, today, we’ve got an Asian-inspired stir fry with noodles that is easy enough to make on a weeknight and good enough to share with others any time.

With a busy schedule shuffling our own activities and the those of the kids, it’s always nice to have a meal that is relatively simple and quick to make, and pretty much stands “on its own” without having to think about side dishes to go with it. As we continue to post recipes and thoughts on this site, you’ll see that theme emerge.
That brings me to today’s recipe. A quick and simple stir fry intended to use up a pile of different veggies from the fridge, along with a healthy helping of protein and some simple seasonings. In this case, we’re going to rely on having a little leftover sauce kicking around from a previous recipe, and then just adding a little more to it. And this recipe leaves plenty of leftovers for at least a couple of lunches during the week.
