Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced (use a mix of colours for variety)
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 1 medium courgette, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari (for a gluten-free option)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup
  • Optional toppings: sesame seeds, chopped green onions, cilantro

Instructions:

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  • Add the sliced onion and minced garlic to the skillet. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until the onions are translucent and fragrant.
  • Add the bell pepper, broccoli florets, and sugar snap peas to the skillet. Stir-fry for another 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
  • Incorporate the sliced courgette and cherry tomatoes into the skillet. Continue stir-frying for an additional 2-3 minutes until the courgette is just tender and the tomatoes are slightly softened.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the grated ginger, soy sauce or tamari, rice vinegar, and honey or maple syrup to create the sauce.
  • Pour the sauce over the stir-fried vegetables in the skillet. Stir well to coat the vegetables evenly with the sauce.
  • Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly and everything is heated through.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the springtime stir-fry to serving plates.
  • Garnish with optional toppings such as sesame seeds, chopped green onions, or cilantro for added flavour and serve the gut-healthy veggie stir-fry immediately as a nutritious and satisfying meal.
