Garlic Ginger Cashew Vegetable Stir Fry

This is a veggie- and nutrient-packed meal that leaves you feeling so satisfied. The sauce flavor combination is perfection. I’m kiiind of obsessed with garlic and ginger though. If you are too, or if you’ve been looking for a delicious meatless dinner idea, this vegetable stir fry is for you!

Garlic Ginger Cashew Vegetable Stir Fry

Make this recipe your own!

As always with Nourish with Nik recipes, feel free to swap out veggies. You may need to adjust cooking time slightly. For example, carrots take the longest of the veggies I’ve included, so I began cooking those before all the others. Other great additions might be mushrooms, green beans, and baby corn.

Make it non-vegetarian

You could also easily add another protein to this vegetable stir fry! Chicken, shrimp, beef, tofu — whatever your heart desires. If I were doing this, I’d cook the protein in the wok or large pan first, remove and set aside, then make the recipe using my instructions, mixing the cooked protein in at the end. I also would probably increase the amount of sauce (multiply by 1.5 or 2).

Okay, let’s get right into the recipe! 🙂
