Veggie Stir Fry with Tainan Noodles
As the temps start to rise, you might want to spend less time in the kitchen.
This stir fry will help you balance your time indoors and out.
There’s absolutely nothing difficult about this recipe.
If you know how to chop veggies, heat up a pan and boil water, you’ll be set.
Just about any veggie combo will work.
You can even add chicken or beef if you want.
As written, this is a vegetarian dish.
My dish included the following —
- 4 brussel sprouts
- 10 green beans
- 4 mini bell peppers
- A handfull of Arugula
- 1/4 of a shallot
Why? That’s what I had in the fridge!
Just about any veggie combo will work, but here are a few things to think about.
You want a crunchy vibe so use crunchy veggies as a base.
Broccoli, cabbage, carrots would all work.
Next, you want color.
Red, orange, yellow veggies or fruits are the next ingredient.
I love bell peppers for that but you could also put in corn or yellow squash.
Finally, you want some fresh element.
I did not add in the arugula until it was finished and in the bowl.
You could use spinach, watercress, mustard greens, kale or any green leafy veggie you like.
So that’s it — crunch, color and fresh greens.
You can top it with some toasted almonds, wontons, crispy rice noodles and cilantro. It’s so flavor packed!

Veggie Stir Fry with Tainan Noodles?
If you are in the mood for a quick and delicous veggie filled meal, this stir fry will fit the bill. Use any combo of veggies you like and the pre-packaged noodles like I did and you’ll have a quick and delicious vegetarian meal.
- About 1 cup of chopped, diced veggies
- 1 packet of noodles — I used A-sha Tainan Thin Noodles
- 1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce
- 1 pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- toasted almond slivers
- fried wontons or rice noodles
You can use any veggie combo you want. I used the following:
- 4 brussel sprouts sliced
- 10 green beans chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
- 4–5 baby bell peppers sliced
- 1/4 shallot sliced
- 1 handful of Arugula, about a cup
- Chop all of your veggies
- Heat the olive oil in a pan
- Toss all the veggies in EXCEPT the Arugula (or spinach or kale if you used those)
- Saute for about 4 minutes
While you are sauteing the veggies boil the noodles — for 1 minute only!
The packet says 2-3 minutes, but that will give you a mushy noodle.
Drain the noodles and add to the veggie pan and saute for another minute or so. Use the seasoning packet that come with the A-sha Noodles at this time.
Dish into your bowl and then add the Arugula, almonds to the top.
So delicous and easy…
- A-sha Noodles are vegetarian (per their website here)
- Add your favorite protein if you want a more filling meal.
