I had such a hard time coming up with a title for this super simple stir-fry recipe. A couple of names I tossed around were “everything, but the kitchen sink stir-fry”, “healthy stir-fry”, “my favorite stir-fry” and “my go-to lunch or dinner recipe”- just to name a few.

I’m going to give you a guide to follow for recreating this effortless dish, but the truth is, I just throw in the veggies and protein that I’m craving and have on-hand. I typically buy a huge bag of broccoli florets from Costco, so they’re usually always in the mix and I’m absolutely obsessed with Trader Joe’s all-natural chicken patties, so those have been my protein of choice lately. For a little extra staying power, I also like to add a carb into the mix.

Recipe Notes

*This is simply a guide from one particular day, I cooked up the stir-fry bowl, pictured. I often change it up and mix and match the proteins, veggies and carbs included. Feel free to get creative and enjoy!
**I cook my chicken patty in a separate small skillet, flipping onto both sides until it is cooked through. I dice it after cooking. The protein source could also be cooked with the veggies.
***I often 1/2 this recipe and make it for myself. Sometimes I make a few servings to store in the fridge for lunches throughout the week.
