Who doesn’t love stir fry? Not only is it SO easy, but it’s really versatile too. You can throw in different proteins (both plant-based or not), whatever veggies you have in your fridge that you need to use up, and then you can really make the base noodles, rice, lettuce, or any other grain too. This stir fry veggies recipe is so easy and one of my favs to use up some of the stuff I have around the house.

Why you’ll love these stir fry veggies:

  • Versatile: As I mentioned, you can really use whatever base, and whatever veggies in this recipe
  • Easy: I wasn’t lying when I said this was easy. Have it ready in just 40-minutes
  • Delicious: The flavors of the Asian-inspired sauce for this recipe really make this so yummy

Ingredient Notes:

Oyster Sauce: You can definitely use regular oyster sauce here, but to make this recipe vegan or vegetarian-friendly, use a vegan substitute. You can find vegan oyster sauce in some stores, but you can also just swap it out for soy sauce.

Tamari: This is a Japanese sauce made from fermented soybeans. It’s thicker than Chinese soy sauce, making it great for dipping as well. However, you’ll often find it as an ingredient in Asian-inspired dishes and sauces like this one. The good news is, that it’s also vegan and gluten-free.

  7. Stir and cook the veggies until lightly browned and tender. About 10 minutes. 
  8. Add the smoked tofu and the sauce to the veggies.
  9. Combine and cook for another 5 minutes until everything is coated in sauce and thickens slightly. 
  10. Serve with fresh basil on top so delicious!
