My absolute favorite dish to order whenever I get Chinese takeout is veggie stir fry. I love the tangy sauce and simplicity of the meal. It also tastes even better as leftovers the next day! I realized, though, that I was buying a dish that I could easily make at home! This quick vegetable stir fry is perfect for the end of the week when you need to get rid of the vegetables in your fridge and don’t feel like spending an hour preparing dinner.
It will take you less than thirty minutes to complete this dish and make enough for four servings. If you’re solo or make a larger batch, you can put the leftovers in a container and keep them in the fridge for a couple of days. Each serving is 273 calories and gives you about 45 grams of carbohydrates, 6 grams of protein, and 8 grams of fat.
The sauce is made out of tahini, white miso paste, and sesame oil. Tahini is a paste made out of sesame seeds, while miso is made from soybeans. There are different colored miso pastes, like white, red, and yellow, which signify salt and flavor complexity levels. White is the lightest out of the three, so it won’t overpower the sesame flavor profile.
