  • depends on what you're making, rough chop a bunch of vegetables and stir them around in a frying pan with olive oil

    if you want meat in it then cook the meat seperately and add to the vegetables.

    if you want it saucy, add sauce.

  • I make a stir-fry at least once a week. I cook rice on the weekends, and keep an assortment of cut frozen veggies in the freezer. I usually just "wing it", but here are a couple of actual recipes:
    Tasty Stir Fry – this is a great recipe that you can adjust based on what you have on hand
    1/2 pound flat noodles (I use whole wheat linguine)
    3 tablespoons oil
    1 small onion, sliced
    1 cup sliced broccoli
    1 cup sliced mushrooms
    1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts
    1/2 cup sliced bamboo shoots
    1 cup bean sprouts
    2 garlic cloves, chopped
    1 teaspoon ginger, chopped
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon brown sugar
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    2 tablespoons dry sherry (you can sub apple cider vinegar, apple juice, beer, etc.)
    1 tablespoon sesame oil
    1 1/2 pounds bean curd (tofu, I use firm or extra firm), cubed
    2 teaspoons sesame seeds
    2 tablespoons cashew nuts
    2 tablespoons green onions, chop

  • Heat a pot of salted water & boil the noodles till tender. Rinse, drain & keep warm on a serving dish. Heat oil in a wok & stir fry onion, broccoli, mushrooms, water chestnuts & bamboo shoots for 2 minutes. Add bean sprouts & fry for 1 minute. Place on dish with noodles. Keep warm. Add a little more oil & fry ginger & garlic for 1 minute. Stir in salt, sugar, soy sauce, sherry & sesame oil. Add bean curd. Fry gently till bean curd begins to brown. Mix together with the noodles & vegetables. Keep warm. Add a little more oil to the wok & fry the sesame seeds, nuts, green onion & pepper till the nuts begin to brown. Use a garnish for the rest of the meal

  • Super Quick Stir-fry
    Here is a quick dinner recipe, adapted from Vegetarian times. It takes less than 15 minutes (if the rice is cooked)
    Heat a few chili pepper flakes in olive oil, along with a sliced garlic clove and sliced ginger. Remove the garlic and ginger before they burn. Add onion saute for 1 min. Add 2 diced up baby eggplants and saute for 5 mins (I have used zucchini and broccoli, too). Add red/yellow peppers & mushrooms. Add 2 tbsp each of brown sugar, tamari & vinegar (I didn't have tamari so I used Braggs) and saute 2 more mins. Add fresh basil. Serve over rice (you could use room temperature leftovers) or rice noodles (they are super quick in a pinch). You can also add cubed tofu before serving.
