Vegetable Stir Fry with Ginger Shrimp
I’ve been experimenting with veggies lately, and many of my attempts have been somewhat ho-hum. For the record, adding radicchio to anything is a bad idea. Radicchio is a pure, vegetable FAIL. This was actually a second attempt at dinner after radicchio ruined a perfectly lovely quiche. I basically just threw together some veggie left-overs from the week and Viola! The result was a fantastic stir-fry. I didn’t bother cooking rice although I’m sure it would have filled me up a bit more.
The fresh ginger gives this dish a delightful kick, add more if you are feeling gingery. Red pepper flakes or Thai Hot sauce would also be a tasty addition if you are feeling a bit spicy.
