Sweet & Spicy Veggie Stir Fry

Sweet & Spicy Veggie Stir Fry

We are all about stir fry’s at this home (especially on lazy Saturday nights when we’re in our sweatpants and ready to binge watch a show on Netflix). Instead of ordering food for delivery, we enjoy making this homemade vegetarian stir fry!

This recipe is made with simple ingredients and did I mention makes great leftovers?! I mean you really can’t go wrong with mushrooms, peppers and broccoli in my book. Steven occasionally cooks up chicken to put on top of the bed of rice and then adds the rest of the stir fry in the bowl.
