Clean Eating Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce

photoThis has been one of my favorite recipes since I have started clean eating. I actually usually eat if for lunch, but it would also make a great dinner. I like to make a batch on Sunday or Monday and eat it for lunch a few days of the week. My husband loves it too. I make a tofu version for me and a chicken version for him, you could also do prawns.

Peanut Sauce Ingredients:
1 cup clean peanut butter (don’t use the grind yourself kind, it won’t work for this recipe)
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
1 lime (juice and zest)
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 clove of garlic – pressed
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional if you want a kick)

Stir Fry Ingredients:
Your choice protein (pick one): 1 package extra firm tofu, 2 chicken breasts cut into one inch pieces, or 20 prawns (add prawns last if they are already cooked, or if raw give them 3-5 minutes to cook).
2 brocoli crowns, cut into florets
1 cup slice mushrooms
1/4 red onion, sliced
1 red bell pepper, julienned
1 carrot, julienned

For Sauce:
In bowl whisk peanut butter and hot water. Add the rest of ingredients until smooth.

For Stir-Fry:
Heat large skillet to med-high. Spritz or brush pan with olive oil. Add tofu or chicken (if prawns add them last). Cook 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, and add onion and bell pepper, cook 3 more minutes, add brocoli and prawns if you choose. When brocoli is tender and protein is fully cooked stir in carrots cook one minute. Turn off skillet add half of sauce.
