broccoli and rice for stir fry

6-minute Broccoli-Garlic Stir Fry was a huge game changer for me when I discovered delicious, flavorful stir fry isn’t complicated to make. I learned this quick and easy technique from my friend, Rachel, whose refreshing approach to food is quick, fresh, healthy and straightforward.

Rachel often likes to use ingredients she already has on hand to create her recipes. Using everyday ingredients with little added flavor is her secret to success for stir-fry.  Rachel explains, “Broccoli should taste like broccoli, carrots like carrots, and fish should keep its natural aroma and flavor.  Flavors should only enhance the food, not change it to be unrecognizable.” This is Rachel’s mantra in cooking.  I like this approach. Sometimes simple is best.

There are only six basic ingredients in this dish but trust me, the flavor of this stir-fry is anything but ordinary. Remember, use what you already have on hand. Replace the broccoli for your favorite vegetable, toss in a little chicken or shrimp.  Whatever suits your taste.  Just remember, the flavor and character of this stir-fry comes from simple, fresh, delicious ingredients without a lot of fuss.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinary.butterfly on Instagram or @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest, or by using the hashtag #culinarybutterfly on Facebook

Recipe Notes

Recipe Notes:

  • I like to keep my stir fry simple, using only a few of my favorite ingredients so you can enjoy the flavor of the food itself, rather than a mix of flavors that take away from the fresh simpleness of a good, healthy stir fry.
