Stir fry recipes are one of my very favorite things.

From orange sauce to stir fry sauce to teriyaki sauce, I love creating takeout inspired recipes in my own home.

Some of my favorites include stir fry vegetables, orange cauliflower, teriyaki mushrooms, egg roll in a bowl, and this cabbage stir fry with sweet chili sauce.

Inspired by these recipes I set out to create a classic teriyaki vegetable recipe that is not only delicious, but easy to make!

Step 3: Once the vegetables have finished cooking, pour in the teriyaki sauce and stir to combine.

Note: this recipe is intended to be very sauce, which makes it perfect for serving over rice or noodles as there will be plenty of sauce to coat everything.

We love the mild and sweet flavor of teriyaki vegetables.

Even my kids loved it and one of them was licking sauce off the plate.
