The simple stir-fry


We LOVE simple stir-fries at Nutrition Sustain! The colour, the crunch, and the quickness of tossing some fresh veggies, a lean protein, and some Asian flavours together (especially ginger, garlic, and soy sauce), always hits the spot :).

Here’s one of the simple stir-fries that we like to toss together on a week-night.




1 Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil or sesame oil

1 medium onion, quartered and sliced

2 x 200 g packets of marinated tofu (love the peanut satay or chilli marinade)

2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped finely

1 thumb size piece of ginger, grated or chopped finely

2 carrots, peeled and cut into sticks

¼ cauliflower, cut into florets

8-10 baby brussel sprouts, halved or quartered

1 bunch of coriander, chopped

2 bunches of broccolini, sliced lengthways and halved

60 mL (¼ cup) of soy sauce or tamari sauce




  1. Add olive or sesame oil to your wok and turn gas stove to high heat.
  2. Add onions and stir continuously with wooden spoon.
  3. Once onions have started to become soft, add garlic, ginger, and tofu, and stir-fry for 1 minute.
  4. Add carrots, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts, and add half of your soy sauce, and stir through.
  5. Lastly, add broccolini, coriander, and the remaining soy sauce.
  6. Continue to stir-fry for 3 minutes until tender crisp (we love stir-fries with a crunch!).
  7. Have a quick taste of one of your veggies, and if your stir-fry needs more flavour, add a little more soy or tamari sauce.
  8. Serve with cooked basmati rice, barley, or brown rice noodles.

Serves 4-5.
