Asparagus-Snow Pea Stir Fry

Posted on March 23, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I found this recipe in the Better Homes cook book. It’s a great meal if you want a lot of vegetables in one setting. I usually eat this on top of 1 Cup of cooked whole wheat rice. White rice would be just as good or better, but I prefer wheat.
