Easy Broccoli Stir Fry

If you are looking a quick meal idea, this Easy Broccoli Stir Fry is it.  I was inspired to make this recipe by my Thai Peanut Sauce recipe.  I thought it would go really well with the broccoli since I sometimes put broccoli in my Peanut Noodle Stir Fry recipe.

I slightly tweaked the peanut sauce for this recipe.  It came out pretty yummy!

Vegan Egg Roll in a Bowl

Who doesn’t love an egg roll?  I can never find egg roll wrappers that don’t contain egg so I made this Vegan Egg Roll in a Bowl. It tastes exactly like the filling found in those delectable egg rolls, but without the fried wrappers!  I know typically egg rolls have added meat, so I added the sliced portoblello mushrooms to provide a meaty texture in place of the meat.

If you want to add some extra protein to this stir fry, you can add toasted peanuts or cashews.  Quinoa may be another nice addition.
