    If you’ve been reading the site for a while, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of one-skillet dishes. Any time I can chuck a bunch of healthy ingredients into one pan and something delicious comes out is a win in my book.

    Quick stir-fry veggie mixes are a staple in our house because I can make a big batch with leftovers for the next day, and it’s easy to pair them with just about any protein for a complete meal.

    You might notice this recipe is made in a skillet and not a wok. I don’t know about you, but most folks I know don’t own a wok.

    While they are admittedly the best for stir frying because the thin metal heats up super fast, you can still get a similar result by using a hot skillet.

    I cook this in my trust large Lodge cast iron skillet, and it comes out great.

    What about turning this into a complete meal? Here are just a few ideas from the recipe archives:

    To me, the flavors in this Asian Green Bean Stir-Fry recipe really pop when fresh ginger and garlic are used. But sometimes, I don’t have fresh ginger root on hand, so I’ve given you some options for using powdered spices instead.

    Use whatever you have on hand!

    Coconut aminos are a soy sauce substitute that’s also wheat-free. It’s perfect for adding a little bit of umami!

    If you like your veggies with a bit of spicy kick, toss on a pinch of red pepper flakes at the end for some heat.

    There’s also lots of room to use the veggies you have on hand. I used baby portabella (brown) mushrooms because I had some in my veggie drawer, but this would be equally as delicious with white button mushrooms or even shiitakes.

    For the onion, I used purple because I had that hanging around, but if you have a white or yellow onion, go with that! There’s no need to be 100% exact.

    1. This was amazing! I cooked my chicken, then my veg, then dumped it all together. Doubled the sauce recipe and had plenty. Ate leftovers for lunch today at work too- really nice job, Steph!
