Fresh oranges are coming back into season and this vibrant stir-fry is here to celebrate!

I’ve been tinkering around with this stir-fry sauce over the past year and it has quickly become a favorite in our house. As opposed to so many orange sauces which often feel heavy and cloyingly sweet, this one is refreshingly light and bright and keeps the flavor of fresh oranges front and center — no additional sweeteners needed!

The freshly-squeezed orange juice is perfectly balanced with a hint of tangy lime juice, umami-rich miso, salty soy sauce, sriracha for heat, and plays well with just about any proteins or veggies that you happen to have on hand. We typically make ours with either chicken or shrimp and whatever leftover veggies happen to be hanging out in the crisper drawer. But I have to say that the carrot ribbons shown here are a fun extra touch (and super quick and easy to make with the vegetable peeler). Feel free to also swap in tamari if you’d like to make this recipe gluten-free, or you can use tofu as your protein and easily make this stir-fry vegan too.

This stir-fry sauce is such a lovely one to have in your repertoire. So the next time you’re craving noodles for dinner, grab a few fresh oranges and let’s make it happen!

Orange Miso Noodle Stir-Fry Ingredients

Here are a few brief notes about the ingredients you will need to make this stir-fry:

  • Rice noodles: We love using rice noodles for this stir fry, but the recipe is quite flexible so please feel free to swap in whatever noodles you love best! Just be sure not to overcook the noodles, since they will cook a bit more when stir-fried with the sauce, chicken and veggies.
  • Chicken: I recommend either boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs, very thinly sliced and seasoned with salt and pepper.
  • Veggies: I used a simple mix of shaved carrots (or you can just use thinly sliced carrots), broccoli, and scallions. But feel free to swap in whatever stir-fry-friendly veggies that you have on hand.
  • Aromatics: Fresh garlic and ginger are a must in this one! Their fresh flavors round out all of the other ingredients in the stir-fry perfectly.
  • Orange-miso sauce: We’ll use a 5-ingredient blend of fresh orange juice, lime juice, white miso, soy sauce, and sriracha for our stir-fry sauce. I recommend juicing a fresh orange if possible, but you can also purchase 100% orange juice to save a step if you prefer. Feel free to also adjust the amount of sriracha as needed to taste.
  • Toasted sesame seeds: Finally, I recommend a generous sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds as garnish for extra nutty flavor and crunch.

Recipe Variations

Here are a few additional variations that you’re welcome to try with this recipe:

  • Use a different protein: Use beef, pork, shrimp, scallops or tofu in place of the chicken.
  • Use different veggies: Create your own favorite mix of stir-fry-friendly veggies, such as asparagus, bell peppers, bok choy, mushrooms, peas, squash, or zucchini.
  • Add greens: Wilt some fresh baby spinach or kale into the stir-fry just before serving.
  • Add egg: Make space in the center of the pan and scramble an egg or two, then toss with the rest of the stir-fry.
  • Make it gluten-free: Use gluten-free tamari in place of the soy sauce and your choice of gluten-free noodles.
