Stir-fry is the quintessential speedy supper.
Sometimes the last thing we want to do is spend hours in the kitchen after a long day in the studio, so we’ll whip up this delicious peanut butter stir-fry.
Usually we’d reach for tofu, but ideally that would involve marinating overnight. And for this dish we wanted to create something you can knock-together at the last minute.
The veggies really don’t need very long in the pan. Just make sure you keep the wok nice and hot so the veggies cook quickly.
We also add chopped peanuts for that extra crunch and saltiness. Yum!
And don’t forget, if you love this, then you’ll totally love our debut 5-ingredient cookbook So Vegan in 5, which is available to buy right now.
