Who doesn’t love a stir fry? For starters it’s one of the only dishes you can truly throw in any combination of foods and it’ll taste delicious regardless of what you put in it. But mostly we love a good stir fry because it is relatively healthy and SUPER quick to make. But what if we told you that you can make it even tastier by  marinating it first (for just 15 minutes) giving it some much needed flavour? Oh and did we mention it won’t take that much longer?! Then you’ll love our latest recipe.
