Weeknight meals should be simple and this tuna stir fry is the perfect combination of quick, easy and delicious!
If you're like me you LOVE a good stir-fry. I'm completely obsessed with them. My daughter is a stir-fry fanatic so it's something I make often. It's so much fun coming up with new ideas and fun twists on our favorite food.
We've been super busy lately so I wanted a recipe that was quick to make but healthy as well. Plus it needed to be finicky kid-friendly. My kids are older but one is a bit picky.
I needed a protein with a firm texture but wanted something different than our old stand-by's. So I opted for tuna. I wanted a fresh taste that would make my stir-fry pop with flavor. This recipe delivered in a big way.
Since I had some minor health issues lately I knew I wanted a protein that was lean with healthy fat. Some of you may know I had a bit of a health scare recently. So we've been trying to eat healthier. Tuna is a great healthy option and super versatile.
Some of my regular readers may know that I was recently hospitalized overnight. I'll tell you more details about the incident in another post. For now, let's just say you will likely see healthier recipe options on the blog from time to time.
Don't panic, I still intend to post lots of yummy dinner recipes and over the top desserts. I just might be tossing in more stir-fries and salads from time to time. Life is all about balance. I truly believe in moderation in life, with food and everything else.
For me, life is all about making great food and spending time in the kitchen with family and friends. So I intend to keep enjoying the things I love. Cooking and eating are not only my job but my passion. I'm lucky enough to do what I love for a living
If you love cooking as much as I do I highly recommend you make this recipe as soon as possible. It's super easy to make.
The color just pops after a few minutes in the wok. This recipe is not only delicious but it's gorgeous to boot.
I added carrots next. I used a vegetable peeler to make super thin ribbons but you could dice or chop any way you like.
Then I tossed in some broccoli sprouts. I'm obsessed with sprouts. There's something about them that just makes me happy.
At this point, the color just jumps off the screen. Trust me, it looks this pretty in person too. Plus it's just so darn easy to make.
I served this over basmati rice because it's our favorite kind of rice. We also really dig jasmine.
You could also serve this with noodles. Or just eat it solo. Your choice. I just happen to love rice with my stir-fry.
No matter how you serve this be sure to include a little squeeze of lemon juice over top. It adds a little pop of flavor and really enhances the dish.
I also really recommend that you drizzle some really good quality honey over the stir-fry right before serving. That added sweetness makes this dish sing.
