Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 3 to 4


For the vegetables

1 1/2 pounds (2 large heads) broccoli

1 head broccolini (or 1 additional head of broccoli)

1 medium red onion

1 orange bell pepper

2 portobello mushroom caps

For the stir fry sauce

3 garlic cloves

2 teaspoons ginger, grated (about a 2-inch nub)

2 tablespoons mirin

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce

2 tablespoons sesame oil (regular, not toasted)

Kosher salt

For serving

Garnish: Sliced green onion, sesame seeds (optional)

Protein: Add 3/4 cup cashews with the broccoli*, 1 cup shelled edamame after 2 minutes, or serve with Marinated Tofu or Sauteed Shrimp (with sesame oil and lime)

Rice: Rice or Instant Pot Rice, to serve


⭐Start the rice and decide which protein you’ll be adding.

⭐Chop the broccoli and broccolini into large florets (about 6 cups florets total). Chop the red onion into bite sized squares. Dice the pepper into bite sized squares. Remove the stems from the portobellos (if necessary), slice them into strips, then cut the larger pieces in half. Place all of the vegetables in a large bowl.

⭐Mince the garlic. Peel the ginger and grate it. Place them together in a small bowl.

⭐Stir together the mirin, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and Sriracha in a small bowl.

⭐In a large skillet or wok over high heat, and heat the oil. Add the broccoli, broccolini (if using), red onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms and cook 6 to 7 minutes until just starting to brown on edges, stirring occasionally.

⭐Add the garlic and ginger cook for 1 minute more, until broccoli is crisp tender but still bright green. Turn off the heat and add the sauce, stirring until combined. Taste and add additional pinches salt as necessary. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onion (optional). Serve with rice and desired protein (see above).


*Adding cashews would serve about 2 to 3 as a vegetarian main; adding tofu can stretch it to 4.

Add protein & rice to make it a meal!

These stir fry vegetables are incredibly tasty and you’ll find yourself sneaking bites constantly! To serve them as part of a healthy dinner, add rice (or noodles!) and a protein to keep it filling. Alex and I eat mostly plant based on the regular, and we’ve realized that just eating vegetables doesn’t cut it. You’ll need some sort of plant based protein to help keep you full. Here’s what we recommend:

Cashews: Add ¾ cup cashews with the broccoli

Edamame: 1 cup shelled edamame after 2 minutes.

Tofu: Serve with Marinaded Tofu, Pan Fried Tofu, or Grilled Tofu

Shrimp: Make our Sauteed Shrimp using sesame oil and lime (and maybe a dash of soy).

Rice: Brown rice is the most filling and a little more nutrient dense. White rice is quicker!

Noodles: Try our Quick Soba Noodles for a perfect pairing.
