3 great veggie stir fries

Stir-fries might be the most underrated midweek dinners out there. Not only are they our favourite way to get a tasty dinner on the table fast, but they’re also a great way to help you increase your veggie intake. These are our picks of the best veggie-heavy stir fries.

Stir-fried greens, baked tofu and sesame

As the recipe suggests, you can mix and match your choice of greens here as you fancy. We particularly enjoy the combination of broccoli, pak choi and cabbage, but really, go wild. The method of baking the tofu here is genius, as it comes out crispy without much fussing about.

Nasi goreng-inspired rice with crispy sriracha tofu

Two recipes with tofu in a row, we know, but trust us when we say this crispy method is another way to win over tofu-doubters. Nasi goreng itself might be something you associate with Friday night takeout, but once you’ve got the basics down, there’s no stopping you. This recipe isn’t particularly veg-heavy but lends itself well to becoming so – at the point of frying off the ginger and garlic, toss in some sliced cabbage or carrots, or even blanched broccoli and a few cooked peas stirred in at the end would also be great here.

The ultimate Pad Thai

Considering this takeaway favourite comes together in less time than it would take to wait for a delivery to arrive, there’s really no reason not to make your own pad Thai at home. As with the Nasi Goreng, feel free to throw in any greens of your choosing.
