As a veggie lover, nothing beats a light and simple stir-fry. Especially when the hot summer months come, where it’s too darn hot to even turn on the BBQ. You can’t go wrong with a single pan, lots of fresh veggies and about 20 minutes to make a delicious dish.

Veggie Stir Fry

A pinch red pepper flakes
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 white onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium carrot, julienned
4 oz shiitake mushrooms, sliced
2 oz snowpeas, halved
6 oz parboiled cauliflower florets
1/2 medium zucchini, julienned
3 oz beansprouts
8 oz baby bok choy, halved

Heat a non-stick saute pan over medium-high. Combine pepper flakes, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar in a small dish, set aside. Add a splash of water and the onions. Cook, stirring, until the onions begin to colour – about 5 minutes.

Add garlic, carrot, and mushrooms, along with a bit of extra water if needed. Cook a further 3-4 minutes, stirring well.

Toss in snowpeas, cauliflower, zucchini, beansprouts and bok choy. Cook, stirring, until bok choy is crisp-tender, 3-5 minutes, then pour the soy sauce mixture over the whole works. Toss well and serve immediately.
