    From: Jennifer Williams
    You don't have to sacrifice flavor if you’re cooking on a budget. I enjoy Asian style cooking and I love stir-fry because it is quick, easy, and versatile. A good stir-fry typically consists of three parts: protein, vegetables, and sauce. Optionally, you can add in aromatics or herbs to change the flavor of your dish. It is also a great use for leftover meat and vegetables. Serve with a side of cooked rice or noodles and you have a cheap and easy dinner!
