Kitchen shortcuts are one of my favorite things in the whole wide world. When you learn a new (and maybe even better) way to accomplish something quickly in the kitchen? That feels like such a victory! My current favorite time saver: Cascadian Farms Organic Chinese-Style Stir-Fry Blend vegetables. It’s like cutting out a full hour worth of veggie chopping without sacrificing any flavor or nutrition. WIN.
This stir-fry recipe is great because it gives you the easy teriyaki sauce recipe (so easy), and you can go about customizing it for your tastes from there. Keep it veggie by adding tofu instead of chicken. Use beef for a heartier meal. Serve it on top of quinoa. Add more red pepper flakes for a bigger kick. Pump up the veggies with whatever you have in your fridge. Make this recipe your own!
The teriyaki sauce itself is a great one to keep on hand for all kinds of uses. It’s wonderful slathered on chicken or kebabs on the grill. If you have any extra sauce, it’ll keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 7-10 days.
