Aloha! Stirfry

Updated on February 24, 2018

Let's face it...

...It's been a loooooooong winter.

I know, I know. "But Meri, you're in the coastal Carolinas! What do you have to complain about?"

Not nearly as much as my family and friends in Hoth, that's for sure, but, up until this week, it's definitely still been too cold for my tastes. So what was my solution? Bring my taste buds to a warmer climate - Hawaii!

Not really.

Of course, I couldn't actually bring myself to Hawaii - that's way beyond my financial abilities - but this Aloha Stirfry definitely brought my tastebuds there for dinner, and at least made me feel a bit warmer inside (though, now that I think about it, that may have been the spices)!

Looking for lower carbs?

Consider using the broccoli stalk to make riced broccoli instead of using white rice!
