Veggie Stir Fry

As always, the What is dedicated to presenting you with colorful ideas for everyday life. Many of our ideas are food-related, because we love food. Learning how to cook for yourself now that you no longer have your mom or your meal plan to provide your meals can seem like a daunting task. We at the What are here to show you that cooking can be fun, easy, and rewarding by offering up recipes like this from our personal cookbooks. As is the case with most of our recipe-based ideas, this one is simple and delicious, just like us.

Veggie Stir Fry

In keeping with most meals I prepare; this is quick, easy, and involves a lot of veggie chopping. Health-wise, it's wonderful, until you add the stir-fry sauce and the ridiculous amount of sodium that goes with it. But hey, who cares? It's delicious and you'll be more than happy to eat your vegetables!


Vibrant, healthy, and delicious!
NOTE: You can add and subtract veggies as you so desire. This is what I like to include. I will recommend going for color variety in your veggies, simply for aesthetics. Oh, and all of these measurements are estimated, we mostly just eyeball it.
1 Onion, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 cups of broccoli florets
1 can of corn, drained
1 zucchini, sliced
2 cups of mushrooms, sliced
2 cups of baby carrots, sliced lengthwise

Stir-Fry Sauce 


  1. Slice, dice, chop, and hack everything accordingly. Don't worry about the corn.
  2. Prepare pan or wok with EVOO to get your saute on.
  3. Start with the onions and garlic and saute for a couple of minutes.
  4. Add carrots and broccoli.
  5. Add bell pepper.
  6. Add mushrooms.
  7. Add corn.
  8. Add zucchini.
  9. Throughout the additions, be sure to continue moving the veggies around to get an even cooking. Add extra EVOO as needed.
  10. Shortly after adding the zucchini, add stir-fry sauce. Stir it in well, and taste. If it's good, cool. If you want more, add more.
I prefer to enjoy the Veggie Stir Fry on a bed of sticky rice. This makes it ideal for eating with chopsticks, which is a good way to keep yourself from inhaling the food. This is a meal that deserves to be savored and enjoyed! Happy eating!
