Private: Simple Vegetable Stir-Fry
Stir-fry is an excellent way to add vegetables to your diet. The even, hot heat of a wok allows for quick cooking, yielding crisp, nutrient-dense veggies. Safe for very high heat, avocado oil is the perfect medium for stir-frying in your wok, which will conduct heat at temperatures much greater than the average non-stick skillet.

Once hot, add enough avocado oil to coat the bottom and sides of the wok (if the oil smokes when added, your pan is too hot and should be removed to cool slightly before continuing). Add the garlic and red pepper, if using, and move the pan off the heat for 30 seconds to flavor the oil without burning the garlic.
