Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry


This vegetable stir-fry is something I whipped up one day when I felt like a stir-fry but did not have all the ingredients called for in some of the stir-fry recipes on this site. I used certain vegetables I had on hand, but any seasonal veggies may be used. It has a mild ginger flavor that can be enhanced according to taste, and is filling yet light on the tummy! Tofu may be added. Serve over a bed of steamed jasmine rice.

  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger root, divided

  • 1 ½ cloves garlic, crushed

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 small head broccoli, cut into florets

  • ¾ cup julienned carrots

  • ½ cup snow peas

  • ½ cup halved green beans

  • 2 ½ tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • ¼ cup chopped onion

  • ½ tablespoon salt


  1. Place 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon ginger, garlic, and cornstarch in a large bowl; mix until cornstarch is dissolved. Add broccoli, carrots, snow peas, and green beans; toss lightly to coat.

  2. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add vegetable mixture and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent burning.

  3. Stir in water and soy sauce; add onion, salt, and remaining 1 teaspoon ginger. Cook and stir until vegetables are tender but crisp.
