3-Ingredient Homemade Stir-Fry Sauce
For every good stir-fry you need a good sauce, it can make or break any dish.
This one really does have just three ingredients and it comes together as quickly as you can put them in a jar!
Screw the lid on, pretend you’re in a bar shaking some cocktails and you’re ready to go!
Vidalia Onion Stir-Fry Sauce
If you love ginger, you’ve come to the right place.
A handful of flavors blend together to create this incredible sauce.
Ingredients such as garlic, ginger and apple cider vinegar (or apple juice if you prefer) are amongst the list of goodies needed to make this restaurant quality blessing!
Vegetarian Rainbow Pad Thai Stir-Fry
The title of this recipe may be ‘vegetarian’, just to confirm, this is definitely vegan. And delicious it is too!
A very high-quality stir-fry made with nothing but the best ingredients. This isn’t the sort of recipe where you have to go out and buy everything (unless of course your kitchen is, literally, empty!).
Everything is pretty much an everyday standard. Perfect for leftovers as well.
Pasta Mushroom Stir-Fry
I’d be hard pressed to choose a favorite between a stir-fry and a pasta dish. This combines both!
The recipe calls for lentil pasta although you could easily use your favorite and it does need to be cooked before you begin.
This is all about mushrooms and the flavoring that go along with that. You end up with a dish that is the definition of hearty and satisfaction!
Mongolian Noodles and Veggies Stir-Fry in Spicy Soy Ginger Sauce
Look at the colors in the picture! The best part about this recipe is when you make this, it really will look just the same.
They say the first thing we do is eat with our eyes and this dish is the perfect example. If you follow the recipe exactly then you’ll have the beautiful array of colors from the kale and purple cabbage.
However, if you have any leftovers that need eating, substitute those and the essence of this dish remains the same. Enjoy!
Macrobiotic Stir-Fry with Veggies and Brown Rice
Whether you’re into a macrobiotic diet or not, this should make it to your table!
If you’re simply looking to be inspired with great recipes, or you’re interested in starting out in macrobiotics, this would be the perfect place to start.
Straightforward ingredients such as broccoli, corn and just a few others. Prepare all the vegetables and cook for about 30 minutes. You’re going to love it!
Spicy Stir-Fried Szechuan Eggplant
If you’re new to eggplant, you may want to learn a little more about them. It’s certainly an interesting vegetable, some people love it and others not so sure. From my experience, if you have a really good eggplant recipe, that normally wins over most people.
I think for a Szechuan dish, eggplant is probably one of the best ingredients. Amber has done the perfect job in illustrating this with the recipe.
You need just 6 ingredients and a couple for garnish. It really is that simple and I guarantee you’ll never have take-out again after eating this.
Thai Basil Tempeh Stir-Fry
If you like Thai cooking, you’ll be right at home here.
This is a plant-based and healthy version on the traditional Thai recipe and it tastes mighty good!
The ingredients are divided into two sections, the main part of the dish and the five ingredients needed to make the sauce.
The entire meal comes together in 25 minutes or less, it’s incredibly inexpensive and incredibly tasty!
15-Minute Vegetable Ramen Stir-Fry
I don’t know what to tell you other than you simply have to make this!
From start to finish your looking at 15 minutes to bring this to the table, and this includes prep and cooking time. I imagine you’ll have most of ingredients already.
It’s the perfect solution for when you want that take-out fix but don’t want to spend all that money!
Quick and Easy Noodle Stir-Fry
Oh my goodness, I could eat dishes like this all day and every day!
Here you have noodles which couldn’t be simpler to make. Once cooked and the rest of the instructions followed (see recipe page) throw in the rest of ingredients and you have yourself a satisfying and super healthy dish.
As you can probably guess, this is incredibly versatile so feel free to add any vegetables you have as leftovers. Maybe some tofu as well?
Simple Tofu Green Bean Stir-Fry
One of the problems with take-out is that they often contain MSG. If you know anything about it, you know it’s something to avoid.
The beauty of this recipe is its simplicity and it’s also extremely inexpensive. In addition, if you’ve never been sure about tofu before, the way it’s prepared in this dish is delicious!
The recipe is also versatile, so you can swap out green beans with any leftover vegetables you have. Fantastic for a multitude of reasons!
Mushroom Stir-Fry Side Dish
If you’re a mushroom lover this just has to be on your list of favorite recipes.
When you’re planning to make Chinese food at home, this is a must.
Makes for a perfect side dish although it’s so tasty, my advice is to double the ingredients and serve with your favorite rice. Job done!
Simple Soba Noodle Stir-Fry
This is one for the noodle lovers amongst us.
Quick, inexpensive, super healthy and extremely versatile. You can use soba noodles or if you have any others in the cupboard, that will work too.
Throw in your leftover vegetables and in no time, you have the meal of champions!
Three Pea Ginger Tofu Stir-Fry
The perfect recipe for when you’re wanting to avoid carbs.
The first item on the list of ingredients is a link to a separate recipe on how to prepare the ‘Ultra Crispy Unfried Tofu’, I recommend you check that out because it’s tofu like you’ve never had before.
Other than that, you’re looking at different types of peas, ginger, garlic and more. You could serve over rice or noodles, but that’s up to you which is what this is all about.
Spicy Lentil Bulgur Stir-Fry
A stir-fry with a difference!
Follow the recipe or use any leftovers you have. Extremely delicious!

When you serve it, the first thing you’ll notice is the array of vibrant colors. Without any effort, it simply comes together looking beautiful.
The aroma and the taste will then make this your favorite. Easy to make and feel free to swap out any of the ingredients with leftovers.
10 Minute Lean and Green Tofu Stir-Fry
A perfect meal for when you’re in a hurry but want something nutritious that will keep you going for the rest of the day.
Either follow the recipe which will take no longer than 10 minutes, or use any vegetables you have that need eating.
It’s one of those dishes where you just can’t go wrong.
When you have a bunch of vegetables and little time, this recipe is what you need.
Dice everything up and then stir-fry for about 2 to 3 minutes, job done.
Makes for the perfect side dish or, serve on a bed of rice or noodles for a great meal.
Rainbow Vegetable Quinoa Stir-Fry
This is one of my dream recipes in that it’s all made in one pan!
Looking at the list of ingredients, you can see how simple and quick this will be.
I adore quinoa and it’s a great alternative to rice or noodles for dishes such as this. Don’t forget the sesame seeds!
Udon Noodle Stir-Fry with Jackfruit
If you’ve never had jackfruit before, this is where your journey starts.
Jackfruit is often used in plant-based dishes as it has a very benign taste so takes on all the flavors. Its texture is just incredible.
Throw in the noodles, vegetables and everything else for a fantastic healthy and quick meal.
Spicy Veggie Raw Food “Stir-Fry”
Would you believe this is a raw dish!
Finally chop your veggies to your desired consistency. You then need six ingredients to create the magic sauce!
Combine everything together and voila! If you’re dipping your toe into raw food recipes, this is delicious!
Cajun Style Vegetable Stir-Fry
A fantastic recipe to use up leftover veggies!
The secret is in the seasoning; the author has created a perfect blend with ingredients such as curry powder, lemon juice, maple syrup and more.
Add rice, quinoa, or eat with your favorite bread.
Tofu Veggie Stir-Fry
The author describes this as one of her most basic recipes, don’t let that fool you.
This dish is certainly easy and straightforward, yet the taste is sophisticated, moreish and incredibly easy to create.
Simple ingredients and great for using up leftovers.
Keerai Poriyal, Keerai Thengai Curry and Spinach Stir-Fry
When I first saw the title of this recipe I thought, ‘other than the spinach and the curry part, I have no idea what this is’.
What you get is an incredibly authentic dish. Just a handful of ingredients is all you need.
If you’ve never created anything like this before, there’s a video just above the ingredients that walks you through everything, step-by-step. Fantastic!
Broccoli, Red Pepper and Tofu Stir-Fry
This is one of my favorite recipes from Annie.
If you follow the recipe precisely it’s about two dollars per serving which is awesome. The best part, of course, is the taste.
Annie uses simple ingredients and straightforward instructions to essentially create a take-out meal at a fraction of the cost and no hidden nasty ingredients. Wonderful!
Stir-Fry Sauce for Vegetables
Sometimes you have some leftovers and other bits and pieces, but you don’t know what to do with them.
Keep this recipe on standby as you’ll be using it again and again. It’s better than anything you can buy at the store and you’ll know everything that’s gone in it.
If this wasn’t enough the author also gives you a couple of steps on how to use this sauce as a base to create a tasty peanut sauce! Two recipes in one!
Zoodle Stir-Fry with Spicy Peanut Sauce
If you’re wondering what a zoodle is, it’s a noodle made from spiralized zucchini!
Throw in some diced carrots, peanuts and handful of other ingredients, then comes the spicy peanut sauce which you simply have to try in order to believe how delicious it really is.
Mix everything up and you have a super healthy dish that costs so little to make!

Have you ever had Lotus root? I don’t remember if I have so this recipe motivated me to try some!
I guess this makes for a perfect side dish although it’s so tasty, add some rice or noodles and you have a meal right here.
If you want to impress someone with something they probably don’t eat very often, if at all, this is the perfect recipe.
Just five minutes prep time and the same for cooking is all you need.
Meal Prep Veggie Stir-Fry
This recipe is an awesome idea. A dish so good you can eat it cold!
The amounts listed in the ingredients make 4 adult size lunches. You’re only looking at 15 minutes prep time and the same for cooking.
Make sure you scroll through the ingredients page as about halfway down there’s a video that walks you through everything step-by-step and this is really useful!
Green Stir-Fry with 3-Ingredient Steamed Coconut Buns
I have a lot to say about this recipe and yet at the same time I don’t!
The stir-fry is simply awesome. Beauty in its simplicity and extremely versatile. You should keep this on standby for when you have leftovers.
The real magic is in the steamed coconut buns. If you’ve never had steamed buns before, OMG, eat them right now!
They are my absolute favorite, okay I have many favorite foods, but these are definitely on that list!
Stir-Fry Zucchini Noodles
If you’re trying to avoid wheat or rice, zucchini noodles are your go-to friends.

Okra and Cherry Tomato Stir-Fry for Two
Have you ever had okra? Whether you have or haven’t, this dish is a keeper!
I would definitely make this as a meal rather than a side-dish. Just two main ingredients and everything else is all about adding wonderful flavor.
I encourage you to read the notes as this will guarantee perfect okra every time.

Blood Orange Broccoli Stir-Fry
I have never seen citrus in a stir-fry before! Not only was I keen to try it, I was excited to see the blood oranges and wondered how it would taste.
The end-result is a sweet and tart like flavor that I can pretty much guarantee you’ve never had before.
The taste is not so unusual to make you just think it was ‘nice’ but unlikely to have again. Perfect for using up left-over veggies too!
Easy Cauliflower Rice Stir-Fry
If you’ve never had cauliflower ‘rice’ before, let this be your introduction!

Don’t the colors in this dish just pop out?! You can achieve this too with virtually zero effort.
