Quick Meals…Vegetarian Stir-Fry

I had a bunch of leftover veggies in the fridge from my CSA, so I decided to throw them into a stir-fry (along w/a few other items).  Turned out delicious.

Ingredients: (for 4) snap peas, 1 (large or 2 small) yellow squash, 1 (large) zucchini,  1/2 onion, 1/2 can water chestnuts, soy sauce, Soy Vay’s Veri Veri Teriyaki (or any Teriyaki sauce) & 4 cups rice.  Optional items I threw in: nuts (crushed), chives & 1 package Seitan.


Cook time: approx 25-30 minutes.

Cook the rice in a rice cooker or on the stovetop per directions while you cook up the stir-fry ingredients.

1. Wash & chop up the squash, onion & zucchini

2. Wash & snap ends off of snap peas

3. Chop up the Seitan

4. Wash & chop chives into little pieces

5. In a little bit of oil (sesame or olive oil) cook the veggies up for a few minutes in a wok or large pan on medium-high heat

6. Add in the Seitan, water chestnuts & chives to the pan/wok

7. A minute later, add in the snap peas

8. Add in about a tablespoon of soy sauce

I love this Teriyaki sauce- made by Soy Vey (company started by a Chinese-Jewish couple)!  

9. Pour in some of the Teriyaki sauce (to taste)

10. Add in about 1/4 a cup of nuts (optional).

Once the veggies have been cooked (don’t over-cook, they should still have a slight crispness to them), serve warm over rice.

Yum yum!

Was even yummy for lunch re-heated the next day – a great leftovers meal!!
