This Simple Noodle Vegetable Stir Fry is a quick and easy dish with endless options. I used baby Bok Choy, Portobello mushrooms, onion, garlic, and baby corn. You can use any veggie you like or have on-hand. I also added cashews.
We love this stir fry because it’s…
- Easy to make
Serve with rice or noodles
Sometimes, I serve stir-fries like this one over rice and sometimes noodles.
The rice options I usually choose are jasmine or brown jasmine. Since my husband is not as big of a brown rice fan as I am, we like to make a mixture of both in the rice steamer.
The two types of rice cook well together–1 cup white jasmine + 1 cup brown jasmine.

Rice steamer just makes life easier
What I like about it the most is that all I have to do is add water and walk away–no stirring or watching required. I can go walk the dog or do the laundry.
When it’s completely cooked, the steamer automatically switches to Keep Warm and will be ready to eat whenever we are.
RECIPE CARD BELOW
Nutrition in brown rice
Brown rice gives you small amounts of thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, folate and niacin.
These B vitamins tend to work hand-in-hand to pull energy from the foods you eat, while supporting brain processes and blood-cell formation.
You’ll also get magnesium, phosphorus and a little calcium, to keep your bones strong; in addition to potassium and a minimal amount of sodium, for fluid balance and heart functions.–LiveStrong
Nutrition in Bok Choy
The nutritional value of bok choy, also known as Chinese cabbage and pak-choi, is invaluable if you’re seeking a vegetable high in nutrients and absent or low in all of the bad stuff — fat, sodium and sugars. Bok choy, consumed cooked or raw, is a valuable source of folate and vitamins A, C and K.
The Centers for Science in the Public Interest rates bok choy among other vegetable “superstars,” partly due to the vegetable’s rich vitamin K and beta-carotene content.
A cup of raw, shredded bok choy contains 31.9 micrograms of vitamin K and 1,877 micrgrams of beta-carotene.–LiveStrong
Other add-in options for this recipe would be Napa Asian cabbage, water chestnuts, green onion, red-yellow-green bell peppers, little bamboo slices, etc. Options are endless!
