Spring Vegetable Stir Fry with Lemon Ginger Sauce-this simple and healthy stir fry is loaded with spring green vegetables. The lemon ginger sauce is light and refreshing! This dish is a must make for spring!
I have a travel hangover. I enjoyed my trip to NYC and Florida, but I am exhausted times ten. I am trying to get back into the swing of things, but it has been hard. Thankfully, Josh is full of energy and has been making up for my slacking. He did all of my trip laundry, planted flowers, mowed the lawn, went grocery shopping, and made dinner. For dinner, he made Spring Vegetable Stir Fry with Lemon Ginger Sauce. We love this stir fry recipe and it tasted even better after a week of eating out! You can’t beat a good home cooked healthy meal, especially when it is made by your handsome husband:)
Josh used asparagus, sugar snap peas, and green onions to make the stir fry. I love spring vegetables, especially the spring greens! You can never have too much green:)
He also added water chestnuts. They add a nice crunch to the stir fry!
The lemon ginger sauce is easy to whisk up and is so good with the spring veggies. The sauce is light and refreshing! Josh served the Spring Vegetable Stir Fry over quinoa. You can use rice if you wish, but we love using quinoa! The Spring Vegetable Stir Fry hit the spot! We all enjoyed a healthy dinner together. Caleb liked the sugar snap peas the best. I guess it is fitting, our little pea loves peas:)
Spring Vegetable Stir Fry with Lemon Ginger Sauce makes a great healthy meal…especially if you can get someone else to make it for you:)

First, make the Lemon Ginger sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together broth, Tamari , water, sesame oil, lemon juice, ginger, and garlic. Whisk in the cornstarch, making sure there are no lumps.
