Stir-Fry Zucchini

This quick and easy stir-fry is the perfect complement to any dinner. Try it on a bed of veggie quinoa, or as a meal on its own! Use ingredients you have on hand (organic, whenever possible) and keep it simple and real.  This nutritious dish comes together in minutes, and leftovers can be stored in a glass container in the fridge.

Ingredients:
1 – medium zucchini
½ chopped red bell pepper
1 – medium carrot
½ cup sliced mushrooms
¼ cup goji berries
¼ cup organic unfiltered coconut oil
Coarse black pepper

Chop, slice, and prep all the vegetables and combine in a large bowl. Heat coconut oil in a medium skillet until hot. Add the veggies and sprinkle with pepper, basil, cilantro, and red chili flakes. Cook uncovered for 5-7 minutes, mixing occasionally. Add goji berries and stir – heat an additional 1-2 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!

Here are my “must-haves” in preparing this recipe. For storage, glass jars and containers make it easy to view in the refrigerator or freezer, and keep food fresh for several weeks. Use organic spices whenever possible. You can find these items on Amazon – just click on the photos below for more info.
