The perfect crunchy texture, yet tender; these pan fried veggies are a healthier version of stir fry. It’s a quick and easy side dish or make it a lunch or dinner recipe by adding some chicken, shrimps or beef. I like to serve this recipe with my Roasted Duck | Sesame Soy Marinade. I hope you’ll try this recipe and enjoy it as much as we do. Happy Cooking!
