If you're in need of a quick dinner, consider stir fry. We're sure everyone has had their fair share of disappointing stir fry dishes, with bland chicken and soggy vegetables. But this is not what stir fry is about. We promise.

The whole idea of stir fry is is to cook ingredients quickly in a hot pan while keeping the vegetables crisp, adding in bold flavors like garlic or ginger, and serving it right away -- still hot. When done this way, stir fry recipes are surprisingly satisfying. They're quick to make and healthy too, without being boring.

We've found 30 stir fry recipes for nights when you don't have tons of time to spend in the kitchen, but still crave a delicious home-cooked meal.
