Vegetable stir fry recipe for fast meals, with teriyaki sauce, white asparagus and snow peas, served with basmati rice.
For a couple of weeks, we have been experimenting with lots and lots of vegan meals. And while we sometimes rely on store-bought vegan options, we also started “veganizing” our favorite recipes.
One of our favorites must be the vegetable stir fry recipes that we use every time we need a quick and delicious meal. An easy stir fry sauce is teriyaki, which we absolutely love. When you have some vegetables that you don’t particularly love, mixing them with teriyaki sauce transforms them and turns them into a delicacy.
Teriyaki – sauce
We like this teriyaki sauce, made by following “Japanese art”.
Cooking white asparagus
We did not find german asparagus, but we did find beautiful white asparagus. I really advise you to avoid canned white asparagus for this recipe, if it’s possible. But of course, you could try making this recipe with canned asparagus. Some prefer grilled white asparagus, others roasted, but I sure fell in love with the sautee white asparagus and I don’t want to go back.
Preparing white asparagus
As we explained in this recipe, of White asparagus with red wine reduction, it should be thoroughly cleaned and peeled, to avoid finding white strings in your food. When I was young, I never tried white asparagus and I always referred to him as albino asparagus. Children have a funny way of expressing themselves, ways that we sometimes could find offensive. But I just taught that it is asparagus that did not turn green, or maybe it did not get enough light to turn white.
Snow peas are actually the only type of green peas I like. And I usually make them cream-soup or mix them in a stir fry. Combined with the sweetness from the sauce, it really adds flavor to this dish, so try to also add the snow peas.
As for serving, you can make any other side dish, but I feel like it goes well with basmati rice and it is also an easy enough side dish that you can prepare at the same time with the stir fry.
