The vegetables chosen to use are completely your preference. Some of the ones we use regularly are mushrooms, Bok Choy, bell peppers, snow peas, and baby corn. Any vegetables you have on hand will make a great addition to any stir fry. I often include broccoli and red bell peppers. Even frozen vegetables are great to keep in the freezer for stir-fries.

You’ll want to allow the vegetables in your stir fry to cook to nearly done before adding the sauce. I like to leave mine just until the broccoli turns a bright green and still has plenty of crispiness.

Making your own sauce is easy and there are many different versions to try. This sauce is terrific, and I have a number of others that I use on a regular basis. Check out my Stir Fry Page to find other delicious sauce and veggie options.

Tips for making this recipe

  • The key to using any sauce in a stir fry is to use a thickener to add body to the dish. Sometimes I use cornstarch or arrowroot powder, and other times if the flour is all I have available, I use that to thicken a sauce with. Any of these will work just fine.
  • Stir fry sauce should be the last thing added to the pan after sauteing the veggies, and the pan should still be hot. The heat is what activates the thickener to swell and instantly thicken the liquid in only a minute or two.
  • Some great things to pair this with as a dip are Steamed Artichokes, veggie sushi, or tempura. I’m betting you can come up with others too.
  • This sauce also works great as a marinade for tofu, tempeh, seitan, mushrooms, and more. Simply cover them with the sauce and allow to marinate for 30 minutes or even overnight to get a fabulously vibrant flavor.
