We love how quickly and easily this beautiful-looking veggie stir-fry comes together. It's chockfull of onions, bok choy, carrots, green peppers, red peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, and asparagus. Topped with roasted peanuts and spooned on top of brown rice, you'll find this stir-fry to be super-savory and satisfying. For added convenience, this dish will last in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can add additional protein by stir-frying skinless, boneless chicken, peeled shrimp, and/or firm, cubed tofu with the vegetables. Also consider adding extra flavor with fresh ginger and minced garlic if you feel like experimenting with the recipe; the possibilities are endless.
