Stir-fries are great for using up all the extra vegetables in the fridge, but sometimes they can feel a little scatterbrained. For this one, the orange sauce pulls everything together so you don’t get that “disorganized pile of random vegetables” effect. You can keep it sweet or make it spicy with a bit of homemade Sriracha sauce and some red pepper flakes.
