Amazing Peanut Vegetable Stir-Fry uses a frozen blend of broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, red peppers, and mushrooms so you can eliminate a lot of chopping. Of course, if chopping vegetables is good therapy for you, feel free to buy fresh produce and get out your favorite knife and cutting board. It’s important to know, in our plant-based lifestyles, that most vegetables are just as nutritious when you buy them frozen as fresh. So don’t shy away from the freezer section in your grocery store.

Make the Amazing Peanut Sauce according to the recipe. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the stir-fry vegetables, covered, until tender, about 10 minutes. Warm the rice in the microwave. To serve, drizzle some of the sauce over the veggies and serve alongside the rice.
The Peanut Sauce in Amazing Peanut Vegetable Stir-Fry keeps well in the freezer. So even though this recipe only uses a portion of the full recipe, we like to make the whole batch and freeze the rest for future use.
