Fast Weeknight Stir-Fry

When I want a light and fast weeknight dinner, I head straight for the fridge and use whatever leftover veggies I have to make this super yummy stir-fry. Crisp tender veggies, meaty tofu and a spicy garlic sauce all come together in a snap with this simple recipe. I really love that I am able to use any leftover veggies that I have and make the sauce with ingredients that I always have on hand. If you are not a big fan of tofu, you can certainly use pork, chicken or beef with this recipe. This meal is cost effective, fast and eliminates a trip to the grocery store! That's a win win win in my book! :)

The trick with this recipe is to not overcook your veggies. Just a quick toss around the wok or skillet until they just start to look shiny and then off the heat! Nothing worse than a soggy stir-fry!
