Vibrant Vegetable Stir-Fry

Vegetable Stir-Fry

Are you like me, who eats with your eyes first? Then this vibrant vegetable stir-fry recipe is for you. Just like the colorful Jicama salad, this stir-fry not only looks amazing with all those lovely colorful vegetables, but tastes great too. I make this one-dish recipe quite often. My kids love it too. I usually make a big batch of this either in the morning for my breakfast and my son’s lunch or in the night for our dinner and his lunch for the next day. I usually just have the vegetables, but do mix in some cooked Quinoa/Brown Rice/Whole wheat pasta for the kids’ meal. If I plan to make it for breakfast, I prep the vegetables the previous night itself to save time in the morning.

Nutritional yeast is a good source of Vitamin B12 for vegans and these days it’s available in almost all grocery stores here in North America.

Since I’m on a hypoallergenic diet and have to avoid mushrooms, dairy and soy products, I used black beans instead. I steamed about 4 cups of broccoli. Used some of it to prepare his favorite for school lunch and the rest with black beans was breakfast for my mom and myself.
