We wanted to share one of our go-to recipes when we need dinner. It’s one of the simpler recipes you’ll find out there. I (Kat) learned a while ago that stir fry’s are better when they are simple. When they are simple you can really taste the flavour from the amazing vegetables included in it.

This recipe has two main components to it and no real base other than the vegetables. You can easily add a noodle or rice to it and other vegetables if you wish to.

  1. I’m not vegetarian but I am making a conscious effort to eat less meat so recipes like these are pure gold for me. I really had to learn to like tofu but I’ve definitely jumped on the hype train haha. I love how quick stir frys are as well. Great recipe, and lovely blog too.

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by and making the effort off meat! Any little bit counts. When I went vegan I pretty much lived off of stir frys. Honestly I still do because I just love them so much. I was lucky enough to always like tofu so becoming vegan wasn’t that hard, the harder part was just convenience when eating out. Living in Toronto though there are so many vegan options that have opened up in the last couple of years. You are more than welcome to share any of our recipes with your community. We love to share how easy vegan food is to make.
