Always Time for Teriyaki! 

Why do we love stir fry? It may have something to do with the Buddhist-inspired “Power of Five” to reflect five different:

  • Senses (sight, smell, sound, taste, touch)
  • Tastes (sweet, sour, bitter, salt and savory umami)
  • Colors (green/blue, red/orange, black/brown, white, and yellow).

This tantalizing teriyaki stir fry is a perfect example of this culinary creativity.

Tempting Your Taste Buds

Radiant red bell peppers and luscious teriyaki sauce sweeten your senses while the sting and sour zing of the lemon or lime juice creates the perfect balance between the two. Zesty ginger and rousing red pepper flakes form a bitter profile for this dish, but they are harmonized beautifully with the salty component of the teriyaki sauce and the undeniable umami element of the carrots and mushrooms.

Craving Colors

Gorgeous green onions, plant-like parsley, and lovely lime bring in the brilliant green and blue. Carrots, red bell pepper, and red pepper flakes fire the flames of red and orange. Mushrooms and teriyaki sauce are bursting with elemental black and earthy browns, while splendidly small sesame seeds wear their white with delight. Graceful ginger and garlic (along with the nest of noodles) rounds out the rainbow of colors with a mellow yellow.

Sensory Satisfaction

Your eyes are immediately delighted with the sight of contrasting color combinations and the superb smell of spices that will knock your socks off! The triple texture of this dish with its soft mushrooms, slightly firm veggies, and smooth & curly noodles will touch your tongue in a terrific way. Crunchy carrots and toasted sesame seeds burst the sound bubble of this delicious dish, which delicately dances on your taste buds.

How to Serve it Up

  • Starchy Substitutions – swap out your nifty noodles for steamed white or brown rice, quirky quinoa, soft tortilla, sweet potato, or even a large lettuce leaf. This fantastic teriyaki stir fry filling tastes great with any grain or vegetable!
  • Don’t Like Mushrooms? No problem! To retain the umami flavor in this meal, knock out the mushrooms and bring in some sliced, tamari marinated tofu or tempeh for a similar texture and flavor.]
  • Veggie Power – pump up the power of veggies with additional greens, like steamed broccoli, bok choy, baby spinach, sauteed celery, or snow peas (my favorite!)
  • Ramp Up the Richness – a teaspoon of toasted sesame oil can spike up the flavor and richness of any Asian inspired dish. You won’t believe what a tiny taste will do to this teriyaki stir fry!
  • Spice it Up or Down – as always, you can add (or subtract) more ginger, garlic, crushed red pepper to your meal to make it as unique as you are!

Leave Room for Leftovers

Easily store your leftover stir fry (if you have any!) in a glass container or ceramic dish.

To reheat, you have 2 options. You can add a little water and a bit of teriyaki stir fry sauce to your container, cover, and microwave for a minute or two. Or, you can add a tablespoon of water and a soupcon of sauce to a small saucepan and stir the mixture gently until the desired temperature is reached.

You might want to cook up some extra rice, noodles or veggies (or all three!) to plump up your portion. Leftovers will be good to go for at least a few days in the refrigerator.

    Terrific Teriyaki! I’m not lying when I say that I could eat this for every meal of the day. The sauce is so good (and super easy to whip up) and, if you have some leftover steamed rice, your meal will be ready in minutes. I added thinly sliced sugar snap peas, extra scallions, chopped broccoli and some toasted cashews to mine and it was incredible! Save money on take out and just make this recipe – you won’t regret it!

    I love stir fry veggies and this was flavorful and delicious. I served it over a bed of a mix of brown and wild rice. Chopped up cilantro to sprinkle on top. Yum.

    I love stir frying cooked ramen noodles right into the veggie stir fry! So delish 🙂
