Brown Rice Asian Stir Fry

You asked for quick and easy, so we're giving you just that! This healthy asian stir fry requires about 20 minutes of prep time and is loaded with healthy veggies, whole grains, and a complete protein. Warning: please don't be intimidated by the multipart directions. Whether you're already a top chef or you've never turned your gas on, this recipe is easy to follow and is practically fool proof. While some of you may choose to chop your veggies individually (all the more power to you), we're thankful that Trader Joe's has developed a pre-cut Asian stir fry veggie blend for those nights we're tied for time… which is the case for us most nights.
