how to make stir fry vegetables

First, add water chestnuts, sugar snap peas, mushrooms, bell pepper, green onions, broccoli, garlic, and ginger to a large skillet or jumbo cooker with 1 tablespoon of sesame oil.

Cook the vegetables on medium high heat for 20 – 25 minutes, stirring often, until most of the liquid has evaporated and vegetables are cooked but not too soft.

Texture is important here, we don’t want everything to be mushy!

Add the stir fry sauce and cook an additional 3 – 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until sauce is thick and sticking to the vegetables.

Serve alone or over white or brown rice for a delicious meal or side dish.

Fresh minced garlic and ginger help tie together all of those oriental flavors of the stir fry sauce.

Don’t be afraid!

You can buy it at most any grocery store in the produce section.

Just cut off the skin/peeling, and dice it up fine just like you would garlic.

What stir fry sauce to use

For this stir fry vegetables recipe, I use the stir fry sauce recipe that I now use for all of my stir fry recipes: my 3 ingredient homemade stir fry sauce (linked in the recipe card below).

It is ridiculously simple, no fancy long ingredient lists, and tastes incredible every time!

As long as you use it with fresh garlic and ginger (like we are in this recipe!) the sauce is a winner every time.

Would you just look at that big beautiful pan of veggies?

This recipe easily serves 4 people, and makes a huge amount of veggie stir fry.

The pan pictured is called a Jumbo Cooker.

I purchased one more than a decade ago and I’ve been a big fan ever since.

I believe I’m now on my third jumbo cooker since I started using them!

It’s a well used and well loved pan in our house, and perfect for making huge stir fry recipes in!

Hello- When adding chickpeas as the protein, do I cook them with the veggies for 20mins or seperately ?

Thanks, can’t wait to try this week.

Either way would be fine! If you cook them separately just use a bit of sesame oil in the pan.

Best stir fry I’ve ever made. Being bold with the ginger makes a massive difference. The stir fry sauce is delicious too. I’ve a sweet tooth so I added a dessert spoon on sweetener.

I thought 20-25 minutes sounded like a long time but the veg were perfect after 20.

Thank you for the recipe.

Can I use frozen vegetables for this recipe? Or will it turn out kind of soggy?

Joy Shull

I wouldn't use frozen vegetables, the texture would definitely not turn out the same.
