Healthy Vegetable Stir-Fry


Looking for something quick and tasty for dinner tonight? That is sort of like,  my speciality! This recipe is just the thing. A combination of delicious vegetables and rice noodles that fill you up on a cold Fall day. I included this recipe in Brooke’s Five Day Healthy Meal Challenge, which she highlighted on her blog a little while ago, because it’s nutritious and healthy for you. Most importantly, when you are feeding a busy family, it’s easy and affordable.

What do you like to toss into your stir-fry?

Serves 4-5 

2 cups of frozen Asian stir-fry vegetables
2 cups of small Chinese green cabbage leafs or bok choy, chopped
1 cup of carrots, julienned
1 package (4 servings) of vermicelli rice noodles, prepared
2 Tablespoons of water
2 teaspoons of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of pure chili sauce

  1. Wash and prepare vegetables. 
  2. In a large wok, on medium heat – place water, coconut oil and chili sauce. 
  3. Add 2 cups of frozen Asian stir-fry vegetables. Cover with lid. 
  4. Allow vegetables to defrost/cook for 8-10 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally. 
  5. Add in chopped cabbage leafs and cover for another 5 minutes. 
  6. Finally, add in julienned carrots and heat for another 5 minutes, making sure all vegetables are hot right through. 
  7. Serve over prepared noodles and top with gluten-free, low-sodium soy sauce if desired. 
  8. Enjoy!

    This looks SO delicious, and I just bought some rice vermicelli. I know what I’m making the next time my hubby goes out of town. He’s not the rice noodle stir-fry kind of guy. But I’m going to keep this bookmarked. Thanks!
    Stopping by from SITS. Happy Saturday!

    You do have some great recipes Miss Shu Han! Oh and I wish we could have fresh veggies all year round, but here in the Great white North, it isn’t always the case. I like buying organic flash frozen veggies – when they are in stir-frys or soup, they taste pretty good! Thanks for coming by :)
