Ginger-Lemongrass Stir Fry

I’ve mentioned that I have some plants in my backyard. Among them, I have some lemongrass. I use it to infuse water or make tea, which by the way it is very good for an upset stomach. This time I decided to use it in my main dish, a stir fry. I combined it with ginger and the flavour came trough nicely. I paired it with some brown rice that I cooked with garlic and cilantro. If you are following a low carb diet you can omit the rice and add more veggies and you will end up very satisfied. It is delicious as is, but you can be creative adding different kind of vegetables or switch red meat for chicken. Enjoy!
