I came across a stir fry recipe in a low-GI cookbook recently and thought I’d reinvent it into something heartier. This is a speedy stir fry or Asian style salad as I would call it that’s really healthy and light on the stomach and low in fats & calories too. I’ve packed in asparagus and mushrooms just to bulk it up so this can be enjoyed on its own as a meal. Enjoy!
