Mid-week dinners don't need to be plain, take hours to prepare or require every dish in the kitchen to put the meal together! We love keeping it simple, but super flavorsome and colorful with stir-fries like this Tamarind & Ginger one!  

Packed with flavor from the tamarind, ginger, tamari and cashews, but can easily be created using any ingredients you have on hand in the fridge!
