Springtime Stir Fry

1 lbs chicken pieces - optional
10 asparagus spears - quartered lengthwise
1 cup snow peas
1 cup broccoli florets
1/4 cup fava beans
*I swapped out the beans for sliced baby bella mushrooms
2-3 Tbl canola oil
1 tsp grated ginger
Chopped scallions - to taste
Chopped nuts (I used roasted, salted cashews, but peanuts would be great)

Heat oil, grated ginger, and 1 chopped scallion in a fry pan over medium high heat. Add chicken, and cook almost all the way through.

Meanwhile, in separate fry pan, place asparagus spears, snow peas, broccoli, beans and/or mushrooms, and cook for 4-5 minutes.

Combine chicken, sauce, and veggies and cook for an additional 3 minutes, or until veggies are softened but still crisp inside.

Serve topped with remaining chopped scallion and nuts sprinkled over.

Can be served over white/brown rice.

I love Pinterest. There are SO many great things: recipes, fashion advice, makeup ideas, home decor, etc etc etc. I could seriously peruse for hours (and I do). I am 99% positive I came to Greatist via way of this glorious website. And thank goodness I did. Otherwise I never would have found this fantastic, and yummy, list!

This stir-fry was great. It was super light and pretty flavorful despite not having a ton in it. I may add more ginger next time. I also think that I have added garlic to it last night, too. Yes, I forget what I did 12 hours ago. The recipe online doesn't include chicken, or the extra nuts for garnish (but I also didn't use beans). I would think tofu would work well with it as well.
