Ginger Orange Stir Fried Vegetables. A versatile side dish for many meals or add stir fried shrimp, chicken or pork medallions for a complete, quick & easy weekday meal.
Spouse made this yesterday for lunch as a stand alone meal but we very often serve it as a side dish as well. The vegetables always vary depending upon what’s in the fridge at the moment or what’s in season.
I like to sauté shrimp or pieces of chicken breast in garlic olive oil and toss them in with the vegetables in the last minute of cooking.
