I love making stir fry because it’s a complete meal filled with veggies and has become one of my family’s favorite dinners. Anyone can make this! Not to mention the colors make a beautiful plate. The key to this stir fry is the delicious sauce made with soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, honey and sriracha. The combination of savory, sweet and spicy is everything! This homemade sauce is better than anything you can buy in store.

In a bowl, add the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, honey and sriracha.
In a large wok, add the oil and wait for it to shimmer. Add the garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the mushroom, broccoli, bell peppers, baby corn and water chestnuts and cook for about 5-7 minutes, until they begin to soften.
Pour in the sauce and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
Garnish with sesame seeds.
Hint: Since everything cooks fairly quickly, make sure to prep everything beforehand before cooking.
Olive Oil: If you don't have any vegetable oil on hand, you can substitute another neutral high-heat oil. Canola, safflower, peanut or grapeseed oils are all great choices.
Soy Sauce: Instead of soy sauce you can use Tamari, Worcestershire sauce, Miso, Maggi seasoning, Salt, Coconut aminos, or Liquid aminos.
Vegetables: You can get creative for this part. I used bell pepper, mushrooms, baby corn, but you can use whatever vegetable variety your little heart desires.
Garlic: For best quality, use fresh garlic instead of garlic from a jar.
Honey: You can use maple syrup or honey.
Sesame seeds: I love using sesame seeds for garnish, although everything but the bagel seasoning works wonders.
Cooking is a chance to be creative! Have fun with it and feel free to make your own variation.

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.
