    Tips for making the perfect stir-fry

    Before we dive into the recipe, here are a few tips to make sure you’ve got the perfect stir-fry every time, especially if you’re using frozen vegetables.

    • Make sure your frozen veggies don’t thaw before you cook them. They should go straight from the freezer into a very hot skillet or wok. This will prevent them from getting soggy. 
    • Cook your rice or noodles the day before and store it in the refrigerator. Doing so makes sure it has the time to dry out a bit so your dish isn’t mushy. 
    • There’s no one way to enjoy stir-fry veggies. You can absolutely customize it to your liking by throwing in your favorite protein every now and then. 
    • If you’re using frozen vegetables, we’d recommend a blend of broccoli, peas, carrots, green beans, and baby corn but you can tailor it to your liking. 

    Frozen vegetable stir-fry recipe

    Step 1: Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, peanut butter, and garlic powder in a small bowl. The combination of soy sauce and peanut butter gives it a nice Thai-style flavor. 

    Step 2: Stir-fry the frozen veggies in a large skillet over medium heat. Once done, transfer them to a paper-lined towel. 

    Step 3: Sauté ginger, garlic, and chopped scallions in the skillet for about 2 minutes and add the cold rice or noodles straight from the fridge. 

    Step 4: Pour the sauce over the rice and let it simmer. Once it’s absorbed into the rice, add in the stir-fried vegetables and serve while still hot. 

    And there you have it! Quick and easy frozen vegetable stir-fry for busy weeknights! You can pick up your frozen vegetable mixture from Shana Foods or get it delivered straight to your doorstep!
