Making a "simple stir fry" isn't all that simple. Getting the stir fry sauce to taste just right is usually a challenge. But my Thai stir-fried vegetables is a no-fail recipe, mostly because the stir-fry sauce is made before beginning to fry the vegetables, allowing you to adjust the flavor according to your taste.  Try it - you'll love it!

3. Stir-Fried Chinese Broccoli ('Gai Lan' or Rapini/Broccoli Rabe)

This Chinese Broccoli recipe is so simple and delicious! In Thailand, vegetable stir-fries tend to be Chinese in origin (Chinese cooking is a huge influence). If you can't find Chinese broccoli, broccoli rabe (rapini) is a close relative that may be easier to come by. Our own western-style broccoli works well too .

4. Baked Sweet Potatoes & Yams

This vegetable dish is super easy!  Just toss with a little oil, add a few spices and pop in the oven for 45 minutes. So easy, so good.

5. Easy Thai Stir-Fried Spinach

This wonderful dish tastes as good (or better!) than what you'll find in most restaurants, and is twice as healthy (no MSG or other additives).  Plus, it takes only a few minutes to make - you can have it on the table in less than 15 minutes.  Great as a side dish to any Thai/Asian inspired meal.  ENJOY!
