Stir fry might as well be synonymous with “easiest meal to throw together” because it involves a very minimal amount of work, the bare minimum in many cases. All you need is some hot oil and a handful of ingredients to get you started. Enter the veggie stir fry: a humble hodgepodge of nutritious yet delicious morsels. I used what ingredients I could find in my fridge and fried them up in some coconut oil, salt, and pepper. However, this dish is a great opportunity to get your creative juices flowing. Use your favorite seasonings, vinegars, garnishes, and sauces. (Check out the Ethnic Flavor column for some spice inspiration.) Teriyaki is an obvious choice, or maybe some soy sauce with toasted sesame oil. Substitute (or add) some broccoli florets or bean sprouts, and throw some scallions on top. Add chicken, shrimp, or beef to the mix; the possibilities are endless!

Ingredients – Makes 1
  • Assortment of vegetables including (but not limited to) asparagus, bell pepper, kalamata olives, wild mushrooms, squeeze of lemon slice
  • Grape seed or raw coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan.

2. Cook vegetables to degree of desired doneness.
