Sweet & Sour Vegetarian Stir-fry


What’s your go-to dish when you want to make a meal using just one pot? Truth be told, there aren’t many one pot meals in my household. Culinary school taught me a lot of things, but primarily, how to dirty up a lot of dishes, and quickly. For most of the second-year classes at my school, a team of dishwashers did our dishes. This was far too easy to get used to. At home, my husband washes all of my dishes. #husbandoftheyear. When I think of one-pot meals, I immediately reach for my wok. It’s been a faithful friend in times of produce overabundance. It also reliably produces a very fast meal, and it’s simple to make little more than a huge pile of veggies taste great.
