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
My rice steamer is a necessity in the kitchen and is used at least once a week. Not only do we make rice, but also bulgur and quinoa in ours.
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.

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
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!
I am often asked which knives I use personally, and I have to say that it is Victorinox. They are the same company that makes Swiss Army Knives and the quality is excellent.

Noodle Vegetable Stir Fry
This is a simple dish that can be easily varied for personal taste. Pictured above, I used baby Bok Choy, Portobello mushrooms, onion, garlic, and baby corn. I also added cashews. Other options would be Napa Asian cabbage, water chestnuts, green onion, red-yellow-green bell peppers, little bamboo slices, etc. Options are endless!
Stir Fry Veggies
- 4-6 baby Bok Choy
- 1 small onion, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- mushrooms, sliced, I used Portobellos
- water chestnuts, drained
- baby corn, drained
- bamboo slices, drained
- any veggies you like, Napa, red peppers, green onion, etc.
- veggie broth
- salt to taste
- 1/4 cup soy sauce or tamari
- 1/4 cup water
- 1-1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 tablespoon sweetener, I used sucanat. Other sweeteners work well too.
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic, I used from a jar
- 1 tablespoon corn starch or arrowroot, to thicken, adjust to desired thickness
Stir Fry Veggies
- Wash and dice veggies.
- In a wok or large pan, saute onion and garlic in 3 Tbsp. veggie broth for approximately 3-4 minutes.
- Add baby Bok Choy and another 3 Tbsp. veggie broth. Cover and cook on medium heat for about 5-7 minutes.
- Add Asian sauce (recipe below) and all other veggies. Cook approximately 5-7 minutes, UNcovered until the sauce has thickened and veggies are done. They are best if not cooked too long, leaving a little crunch.
- Serve over noodles (I like rice noodles) or rice.
- Whisk all sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl. Adjust ingredients to your taste.
