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!

  1. This looks yummy. thanks for posting.

  2. YUM- that looks so good! ii’ve really been craving a stir fry so this is the icing on the cake- i’m going to make one!! lol thx for sharing the recipe.

  3. That looks so yummy. making it for dinner tomorrow!

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. Thanks for the recipe! I’m trying to work more tofu into my life and stir fry seems like a good start.

    • 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.

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

  8. That looks good! We love making stir fry and my husband is all about trying new sauces, I’ll keep this one in mind. Thanks for sharing this recipe 🙂 it seems quick and easy.

  9. I love making stir fries, so easy and healthy if you use the right ingredients that is…the VH Szechwan Sauce is so good isn’t it. I have to admit though I don’t like Brown rice at all…lol. so white rice for me..

  10. I am definitely going to have to give this a try. I love stir-fry and am always trying new sauces. This sounds delicious! thank you for the post. mmmmm.

  14. This looks so good and easy & pretty fast,, too.

  17. love Garlic and Onion, very easy make and economical too, will try it

  18. That looks so good, and so easy.

  19. Yay! I was actually looking for a new sauce that didn’t contain oyster sauce, so this is perfect!

  20. 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!

  21. 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!

  22. Wow this looks like an easy and quick stir fry recipe! It looks good, but I may have to add some meat for the hubby haha.

  23. I love VH sauces. This looks like a recipe my family would love!!

  24. This is my kind of food – as a mushroom lover I would probably add some of those

  25. I have never made stirfry before, but I love using VH sauces. I will have to run out to the store today to see if I can find this sauce.

  26. I love VH products, I find them all great tasting. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  34. Easy and quick stir fry recipe,just the was i like them

  35. 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.

  36. This was very good we really enjoyed it.

  37. I made this last month and it was haft gone before anyone mentioned there was no meat.

  38. I use this recipe all the time now but i add meat

  39. My grandson loves stir fry and it a great way to add loads of veggies in a meal that he enjoys.

  40. This recipe looks delicious, well everything but the tofu but I’ll have to try the VH 1 sauces

  41. 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? 😀

  42. This recipe looks very tasty I make a lot of stir-frys but I havent added this sauce yet
