Made with fragrant ginger and toasted sesame oil, this quick and easy Chinese veggie stir fry is ideal for using up whatever vegetables you have on hand. 
PREP: 10 mins
COOK: 15 mins
TOTAL: 25 mins
Servings: 4


  • 1 tablespoon canola or grape-seed oil
  • 2 tablespoons ginger (minced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek chili paste (optional)
  • 6 cups chopped vegetables (such as broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, onion, peppers, etc.)
  • 1 cup chicken broth (low sodium)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Nakano Natural Rice Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • sesame seeds (optional garnish)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)


  • Pre-heat a wok or large, deep skillet over high heat. Add canola oil to the pan along with ginger, garlic and chili paste. Heat for 30 seconds or until fragrant. 
  • Add chopped vegetables to the pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sauté for two minutes then add chicken broth. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and cover with lid to quickly steam the vegetables to soften, about 3 minutes. (You want them bright and crisp-tender, not overly cooked/soggy.)
  • Stir in soy sauce, rice vinegar and sesame oil. Add additional salt and pepper to taste before serving. Garnish with sesame seeds if you wish.
