Veggie Stir Fry

"Made with ingredients I usually have on hand. This is what I make to clean out my fridge, so the veggies are different each time, but I love this version. This can easily be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable broth."

    I'm sure it'll probably be considered blasphemous, but when preparing this recipe, I left out the mushrooms [other than eating them fresh, I really don't like the slimy little creatures!]. I did, however, add some carrots & cauliflower, & the end result was very, very satisfying! Thanks for this shared recipe!

    This turned out much tastier than I expected. I used an additional 1 1/2 cups carrots in this recipe and next time will add in some onion and peppers. Very good base recipe that can easily be modified.

    This recipe was so easy prepare and very much enjoyed. The only adaptations were that I added carrots and substituted the garlic and ginger with the powdered varieties. Thanks for sharing your recipe Kaarin!

    This is a great stir fry!! Just made half a recipe for the two of us. I added carrots, cauliflower and green onion to the list of veggies, kind of a clean out the fridge. Also used home made chicken stock. Turned out really quite delicious!! We will be making it again, thanks for sharing.

    This turned out so yummy! I used coconut oil and a splash of toasted sesame oil for cooking. I also added a pinch of red pepper flakes to give it a tiny bit of heat which was key for me. I also added just a bit of carrot and red bell pepper to the veggie mix and added green onion at the very end. I served this with fried tofu and precooked brown rice...and it was really delicious! This will be my new go to stir fry recipe.


I'm a stay at home mom with 3 adorable children-an 8 year old daredevil son, a 5 1/2 year old princess and a wild little 2 year old girl! I love to cook, and like having my little helpers in the kitchen! I usually love recipes that are completely from scratch (I still love them actually) but right now my focus is on having any kind of food ready by mealtime! It's a little crazy here lately. Every summer we have a huge organic garden, apple orchard and raspberry and blueberry patches, along with a woods full of wild foods waiting for me to learn what they are so I can collect them. I'm learning about wild mushrooms first, so if anyone has any tips, let me know. We also eat wild venison which my husband and I hunt ourselves. It's our favorite meat, since it's lean, organic and cheap! Some of my hobbies are: hiking, biking, rock climbing, gardening, playing in the water with my kids, or just swinging in the hammock with a good book. I go stir crazy if I spend too much time inside.
