Every vegan cook should become a master at stir-frying. It’s one of the quickest, healthiest, and tastiest ways to whip up a vegan meal with just a handful of simple ingredients. Having a wok helps if you’re cooking over an open flame, but a regular non-stick frying pan does the job just fine. I first learned how to stir-fry out of necessity… I was getting sick of eating canned beans and frozen burritos every night, and I knew I could be making my own tofu and veggie dishes at home, so I started experimenting with stir-frying.
The one thing I love the most about stir-frying is how free you can be with it. If you look up a recipe, but you’re missing one or two of the ingredients it calls for, no big deal, just improvise or go without. Sometimes you don’t even need a recipe, you can just mix together whatever random veggies you have in your fridge, and it turns out just fine.
This list of 12 beautiful vegan stir-fry recipes is full of great combinations and concepts. Some of them are more conventional than others, but they are all brilliantly done. You’ll probably be searching for your chopsticks by the time you reach the end of this page.
