Easy to Make Vegetarian Stir-Fry Recipe

Easy Vegetarian Stir-Fry Recipe

This morning I spent some time online checking out the VH Sauces website and picking out my favorite sauce for our Sunday lunch meal. I decided to plan a Vegetarian Stir-Fry using their VH Szechwan Sauce as a cooking sauce. Stir-Frys are quick and easy to prepare and they taste great. Perfect for Sunday lunch!

I went to my local Superstore to pick up the ingredients while my son was taking his morning nap.  I was able to go to the store and back and he was still sleeping!  I love quick shopping trips. (Check out my Google+ album with photos detailing my shopping experience and how easy it was to find the VH Sauce I needed for my recipe)

Below is the recipe for the Vegetarian Stir-Fry Recipe I made for lunch. This is my own recipe but you can always change/add your own favorite ingredients, that’s the great thing about Stir-Frys.

This Stir-Fry was fast, easy to make and the VH Szechwan sauce was fantastic. The meal was a big success, my husband and I loved it and even our 22 month old enjoyed it!

    I have never used that particular VH sauce but I love their dry garlic one with ribs. I just pour 2 jars over ribs and cook them slowly in the oven and they literally melt in your mouth. My entire family loves to have stir fry for dinner. The recipe sounds great and looks even better (great job on the photos!). The only thing that would worry me about the VH Szechwan sauce is that it sounds a bit spicy/hot. I don’t mind a touch of spice but if it burns my mouth at all, I don’t really like that…You said that your 22 month old enjoyed it so I assume it was not spicy. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Jeannette, thanks for the comments. To answer your question, the VH Szechwan sauce is not spicy at all 🙂 Definitively not a hot sauce.

    August 29-I used to make stir-fry dinners every week or so. For some reasson, I haven’t made them for ages. Reading your recipe gave me the incentive to make them again. We always loved them so thanks for the little push.-el03ro

      That’s how I feel. I’m still new with transitioning into being a Vegetarian. I was looking for a recipe using Tofu I wanted to try. I think this will be my first.

    I will definitely be giving this a try. Tofu is very good for us but pretty bland. the VH sauce should spice it up!

    Thanks Angela!! I started my diet exactly today … and last night I was searching the internet for meals with tofu in them. I have never tasted tofu, but I heard that with the right recipes it can actually taste delicious! This recipe is a God-send, it looks delish and I cannot wait to try it!

    This is exactly the kind of meal that I need to help me eat healthy and well just to make sure I eat! I love stir-fry, but honestly can make it on the not too healthy side at times. With the warmer months comes lots of fresh veggies and I can imagine a lot of variations to this recipe!

    I love stir fry! Now that we have a garden, I’m hoping we’ll have a lot of veggies t make stir fry with this summer. The VH Orange Ginger sauce sounds like one we should try sometime.

    I love a good stir fry but I’m more of a sweet and sour type than Szechwan type, especially since reading up on the sauce and learning that there’s chili pepper in it and I can’t eat that. I must add that I do find things spicy when others think it’s not – I must have sensitive taste buds eh? 😀
