Veggie Stir Fry With Frozen Vegetables

If you are like me and want a delicious meal that is also fast and easy you will love my stir fry recipe. I make it using fresh mushrooms and frozen broccoli, but you could use the frozen vegetable of your choice. I got the basis for my recipe from one of my fellow workers during a potluck dinner.

He had brought in a noodle dish for the pot luck, but it had some ingredients, like shrimp, in it that I didn't like. He was very proud of the dish and wanted me to try it. So I took some making sure to avoid the ingredients that I didn't want. It was so good that I asked him for the recipe.

Now I make my own version with all the ingredients that I want, and none of the ones that I don't. You can do the same with the recipe provided here. You can just change the vegetable to the one that you like or just add more types of them.

You can also change the style of noodle used. I have used a vegetarian Chow Mein noodle for this recipe but I have also used Udon noodles, which were what was originally used for the recipe at the pot luck.

Why a Stir Fry With Frozen Vegetables?

While fresh vegetables might be great to use it can be expensive to always have fresh vegetables on hand. Plus I find it is inconvenient to run to the grocery store to get fresh vegetables before I cook my meal.

By using frozen vegetables I can keep them in my freezer so they are always available when I want to prepare a stir fry.

What I Use to Make My Stir Fry Dish

West Bend 72212 Electric Extra-Deep Square 12-Inch Nonstick Skillet
West Bend 72212 Electric Extra-Deep Square 12-Inch Nonstick Skillet

This is the skillet that I use to make my stir fry in. I like the extra deep walls so if I am making a large dish for my family I don't have to worry about spilling any over the sides.

 

Vegetarian and Non Vegetarian Stir Fry Options

As it is it works as a vegetarian dish. However you can easily add chicken or beef to it, if that is what you prefer. It is a perfect recipe for families that have some people that are vegetarian and others who are not.

You can make the main portion together (noodles, mushrooms, vegetables) in the frying pan and then cook the chicken and beef separately. Then just add the chicken or beef onto the non vegetarian dishes.

      Love stir fry noodles with any veggies. Probably would include bean sprouts and onions to this too.
