Stir-fries are my new favorite dinner dish. If you are trying to increase your vegetable intake, this is an easy and delicious way to do so. The key for me is to make a really yummy peanut butter stir fry sauce that goes over the veggies.

Don’t forget your peanut butter stir fry sauce! I make mine by simply whisking 1/4 cup of natural peanut butter (at room temperature) with 2 teaspoons of reduced-sodium tamari and 2 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar. How is that for an easy stir fry sauce?
Pour it over the veggies:
