We love quick dinners that are easy to make in 30 minutes or less on a busy weeknight. But just because a dish took barely any time or effort doesn’t mean it shouldn’t taste amazing!

That’s why stir-frying is one of our favorite cooking methods: Ingredients are cooked super fast in a screaming-hot pan, either with oil or a complex sauce. The result is an impressively quick, healthy(ish), and delicious dish with bright flavors literally seared into the ingredients.

Today we’re sharing a foolproof recipe for one of our favorite sauces to include in any quick stir fry dish. This Vegan Stir Fry Sauce is an all-purpose Asian-inspired sauce you can use with any combination of veggies, tofu, and protein. And it pairs perfectly with noodles or steamed rice!

How to Make Stir-Fried Veggies with Vegan Sauce

Now you’re ready to make the vegetable stir fry noodles with homemade sauce! First set a large pot of water over high heat. Once boiling, cook the noodles according to the package instructions and drain. Set aside.

Meanwhile, set a large wok, cast-iron skillet, or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Chop the washed and dried veggies while the pan heats up.

Add the firmest vegetables first to the hot pan, and stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Pro Tip: You may need to add 1 teaspoon oil, depending on what type of pan you use.

Once the firm vegetables have seared a bit, then add the softer veggies and stir fry another 1-2 minutes.
