I love using brown rice for a stir-fry because of (1) its firm texture when cooked and (2) the fact that after days of binging on loads of sugar (dang you Easter bunny!) our bodies really need a lil whole grain goodness! Then we have some lean protein (in my case turkey – just because I had it in my fridge really) and loads of fresh veggies. Still sounds pretty basic, but wait for it! Serving it on a fresh salad with a dash of Greek yoghurt and prawn crackers really serves the intense flavors of the Arabic twist that I gave this stir…wait what? Arabic twist? Yes boys and girls, I added my all-time favorite spice mix (amongst other spices) to my stir-fry: Ras El Hanout! Don’t think, scroll down and print out the easy recipe.

Happy cooking!
