Chinese Vegetable Stir Fry

"My daughter found this on and has made it several times now. Sometimes we are missing an ingredient the recipe calls for so we just add something different. We use a 4 ounce can of sliced mushrooms instead of the shitake. We also use frozen broccoli and snow peas to speed this recipe up."

Questions & Replies

  1. Is the cornstarch necessary?


  1. Very good veggie stir fry. I used what I had on hand which was broccoli, onions, zucchini,water chestnuts, and carrots. My family loved this. I drizzled on a little sesame oil at the end. Thanks for the recipe
  2. Delicious and simple, I love it! The vegetables turned out nice and bright and were very crisp. I used carrots, water chestnuts, snow peas and garlic, and doubling the sauce gave me just enough for all of it. Thank you, will be making this often!
  3. I would at least double the sauce as it was not enough for us. Served with chicken lettuce wraps and soup.
  4. It's been awhile since we've done a stir-fry recipe, but you can cook like a pro with this easy recipe! I followed pretty much exactly although I did save the mushrooms until after the carrot mixture was cooked through and then cooked one minute longer. Used veggie broth in place of chicken and a bit more cornstarch than suggested. Great mix! Made for ZWT6.
  5. Wow, I loved this! So fresh tasting, and really easy to make too! I didn't have any fresh shiitakes, so I used a can of straw mushrooms. I also added a can of baby corn and some fresh baby bok choy and bean sprouts to the mix. I didn't have time to make the rice, but I found that it wasn't really needed (I just eat more of the veggies to make up for the rice lol). I'll definitely be making this again -- Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT4


  1. I substituted portobello for the shiitake as that is what I had on hand, doubled the sauce, per other reviewers' recommendations, and added crushed red pepper flakes for a little kick.
  2. Coconut oil and bamboo shoots and fried rice.
