Easy Summer Garden Stir-Fry

Summer Garden Stir-Fry | angiethefreckledrose.com

Hello and happy first day of summer!  Time for longer, lazy days and with that comes delicious garden dishes.  I'm always on the lookout for ways to take fresh ingredients from the vegetable garden and mix it in with yesterday's delicious leftovers.  I've been harvesting an abundance of snow peas and garlic chives lately.  My favorite way to give yesterday's meal a whole new delicious identity is by making a stir-fry.  It's so nice after a long day of harvesting out in the heat to whip up something quick and tasty!

Summer Garden Stir-Fry For Two

Here is what I had left over from the night before mixed with a fresh harvest from my garden!   Feel free to add any kind of vegetables you are harvesting at the time!


○ 1 cup leftover noodles or 1 package of Ramen noodles
○ 1 1/2 cup vegetables - snow peas, garlic scapes,
   matchstick carrots, broccoli, sliced baby bell mushrooms
○ 1/2 to 3/4 cup meat - leftover grilled chicken 
○ 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
○ 1 to 2 tablespoon low sodium chicken broth or water

○ 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
○ 1 to 2 tablespoons roasted sesame oil
○ Pinch of ground Chinese ginger
○ Splash of rice vinegar 
○ Salt and pepper to taste

This dish is so easy to whip up!  Add in almost any kind of leftover noodle and meat from the night before.  The fresh garden veggies really bring out the flavor and give it a whole new appetizing appeal! 

Step 1: Cook Ramen noodles or use a cup of any leftover noodles like spaghetti, vermicelli or Chinese noodles. Set aside for later.

Step 2: In a small sauté pan, add a tablespoon of vegetable oil on medium high heat.  After it has been heating for a minute, toss in vegetables to sauté.  After veggies have been cooking for a few minute, add 2 tablespoons of low sodium chicken broth or water to help steam dense vegetables like the carrots.  Cook until vegetables are almost done to your preference. 

Step 3: Toss in your pre-cooked meat to warm up for 1 to 2 minutes. 

Step 4: Add in your cooked noodles and your seasonings. Heat until the noodles are warmed through.

Step 5: Enjoy!

    Like you, I’m always looking for ways to incorporate fresh garden veggies into supper, and I’m a huge fan of using up leftovers. This will definitely go on the short list for this weeks’ menu! I love to cook fresh veggies just until tender-crisp and this certainly fits that bill. Yea! Thanks for sharing! (Stopping by from the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop)

    We love to have stir-fry at our house. I’ll add a little fish sauce to homemade stir fry sauce I make. It smells awful but we only use a small amount and it adds a nice flavor to the dish too. We also top ours with a little hoisin sauce. Now I’m hungry for stir-fry for dinner. 🙂
