Fresh broccoli florets (the tops of the broccoli) come in convenient packages and can be found in the fresh produce section of the supermarket.
Because stir-frying is such a quick method of cooking it's important to have all of your ingredients assembled, cut, measured and ready to go. In this vegetable stir-fry recipe, many other vegetables would be equally as good tasting. You can use cauliflower florets, celery slices, zucchini slices, green bell pepper strips or pea pods instead of any of the above vegetables.
The Stir-Fry Skillet is deep with high sides to allow more space to stir and toss the vegetables for fast, even cooking.
