Ginger turmeric vegetables stir-fry

This delicious dish was inspired by my trip to Kapas island, Malaysia, where I discovered vegetables stir-fry with turmeric and ginger. Turmeric and ginger is a perfect combination, they add fantastic flavour to the dish, and have great nutritional benefits, too. 

This dish is tasty, satisfying, and beautiful to look at. The recipe is vegan, served with brown rice and lentils as source of fiber and protein. 

On work days, I usually don’t get home until about 6:00 PM and definitely want to have a dish that is quick to prepare and get dinner on the table in no time. This dish is my favorite because it is so easy and super quick to do.
