Stir-Frying

Stir-frying is one of the healthiest ways to cook. Once all the ingredients are prepared, the method takes 10 minutes or less. But all of the food must be prepared before the actual cooking begins. There is no time to chop or slice vegetables once the wok is hot and you start to stir-fry.
