This easy stir fry recipe is a great way to use up all those leftovers! Just dump all your veggies in and cook. You can easily adapt this recipe to your preferences. Mike doesn’t like peanut butter, so I leave it out. I can’t eat soy sauce, so I leave it out and let everyone just add their own.
You can also mix and match the ingredients in this recipe with what you have on hand and to reflect what you like to eat! Super easy and yummy!
