This warm and comforting stir fry recipe tastes delicious any time of the year, and reminds me of balmy summer nights in Bali. It’s worth the extra effort to find fresh lemongrass, which can usually be found at your local Asian market (I once drove an hour to find it).
The three-herb sauce is bursting with nutrients and flavor and after the prep is done, this dish can be thrown together rather quickly which makes it perfect for dinner parties. If you don’t have a wok, you can still make this recipe in a regular frying pan with a little extra oil :) Enjoy!

*If you do not have a wok, a non-stick pan works fine. The benefit of a wok is that it concentrates high
heat in a small area to sear in flavor and cook quickly.
*Option to use rice and mung bean noodles to make this recipe gluten free.
*Option to add fried egg or tofu for additional protein.
