Quick And Easy Vegetarian Stir Fry

Joan Nova finds inspiration for this vegetarian stir fry in leftovers and market finds.

If I’m not in a fresh market where one can select from a variety of mushrooms, the packaged blend  advertised as Asian found in the produce section of most supermarkets fits the bill — and you might remember that Asian Mushrooms are purportedly good for your health. Pair them with whatever vegetables you have on hand and black beans. You’ll feel so healthy with all these good-for-you ingredients.

This is not ‘authentic’ Asian. It’s for the home cook. If you don’t have a wok, a hot skillet will do well too. It’s an easy dish. The key to the stir fry is cooking ‘quick’ and ‘hot’.
