How to mix up your stir-fry veggies
It’s hard to find fresh veggies at the store right now, but don’t let that stop you from making your favourite stir-fries! These tips and substitutes mean you can still enjoy the convenience of a quick stir-fry, even when you can’t find your usual veg from the produce section.
Stir-frying frozen vegetables
If you can’t find fresh cauliflower, broccoli or green beans, it’s time to raid the freezer section. Frozen vegetables are great for stir-fries, and you can also find stir-fry mixes that already have an array of vegetables cut and prepped. Frozen edamame are also a great way to add a pop of green to your dish.
To stir-fry frozen veggies, add them straight to your hot pan from frozen. Cook them for a touch longer than usual, about 5-7 minutes or until tender.
Note that frozen vegetables tend to be softer than fresh vegetables once cooked, but you can try adding in some crunch with the canned vegetables below.
