A stir-fry is a quick and healthy way to cook a delicious, plant-based meal. The moderately high heat allows for speedy cooking so vegetables become crisp and maintain their fresh flavors. Peanut oil offers healthy fat and a high smoke point. Spicy ginger, garlic and onions add flavor and cancer-protective phytochemicals. Serving this dish over brown rice makes for a fiber-rich meal to bridge the seasons.
