What’s not to like about stir-fry? This traditional Chinese technique is one of the fastest cooking methods as well as one of the healthiest. With stir fry, you cook ingredients at a high temperature using little or no oil. Quick cooking preserves the nutrients, resulting in a meal that’s high in taste and low in fat and calories.
