Ginger Vegetable Stir Fry

February 26, 2012 by Ali


This simple stir fry I made this week was so yummy (and lovely!) that I thought it was worth sharing. Just mixed together some colorful veggies, a simple stir fry sauce, and lots of fresh ginger. What’s not to love?!?

It’s perfect for a simple side dish, or if you want to be like me, make it your main course. Definitely a great way to eat your veggies!

Ginger Vegetable Stir Fry

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings


    Stir Fry Ingredients:
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4-5 cups vegetables, cut to bite-sized portions (**see tip below**)
  • Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable stock
  • 2 Tbsp. grated or minced fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp. sherry
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • generous pinch of freshly-ground black pepper


Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and stir fry for 1 minute. Add the remaining vegetables, and stir-fry for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In a separate bowl, whisk together sauce ingredients. Add to the stir fry, and continue cooking until the sauce is boiling. Cook for an extra minute, then remove from heat and serve. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds if desired.

Ali’s Tip:

If using onions in the mix, I recommend adding the onions an extra minute or two earlier than the rest of the vegetables so that they get extra cooking time.
