Chinese Vegetarian Stir Fry is a quick, healthy, tasty meal perfect for a busy weeknight. Serve over rice for a satisfying dinner anytime. Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten Free.
I was just thinking I haven’t had a good stir fry in a while and they are so easy to put together. So if you’re looking for a quick, tasty dinner this Chinese Vegetarian Stir Fry could be the one.
Making Chinese inspired stir fry’s used to be one of my favorite things. Since I haven’t had one lately I decided it was time. Normally if I’m craving certain flavors I just recreate them myself.
Whether it be Chinese, Mexican, Italian? Which are among some of my favorites.
This was prepared with a frozen bag of organic stir fry blend vegetables. But feel free to cut up and use fresh vegetables if you have them.
I did use fresh ginger root and garlic. I love the smell of ginger root and when you saute that with some garlic it is such a heavenly aroma. You could also use a little ginger powder in place of ginger root if you have that.
So once you get the ginger, garlic, and veggies going you just need to add a few more ingredients. I chose to serve my stir fry over rice but you could just serve it alone and it would be just as good.
