Veggie Pasta Stir-fry – Fiesta Friday # 120

Today I’m delighted to be co-hosting Fiesta Friday with Linda@FabulousFareSisters.  We welcome each and everyone of you to the Fiesta.  Thank you all for your wonderful contributions in advance, Linda and I will be checking out all your creations and welcoming you personally.  If you haven’t heard about Fiesta Fridays, it is a virtual linky party where we gather around with our offerings, stay awhile, visit other bloggers and be inspired.  It’s a great way to gather new recipes, strike up new friendships and visit with all the fiesta revelers.  A few reminders before we begin.  Do please acquaint yourself with the linky party guidelines.  Also, please don’t forget to link your post to FiestaFriday.net and the co-hosts’ blogs to be considered for the following week’s features.

Today my contribution to the fiesta will be a simple but scrumptious veggie stir-fry.  When I want to whip up something quick and simple a stir-fry always comes to mind.  I simply chopped up the vegetables and roasted them in the oven at first with red onion, ginger and garlic.  I then made a sauce with soy, siracha, a couple tablespoons sherry, cornstarch, orange juice and brown sugar.  I used wholewheat pasta, I garnished with peanuts and cilantro.  Voila!  A quick and satisfying meal under 30 minutes 🙂

    1. Thanks Sonal, I figured it would be :). I want to try to incorporate some Middle Eastern spices into my cooking these days, so watch out for something along those lines. It really spruces up the veggies in my opinion.

    1. Ha ha, as I read this, I have to say nah I’m not enjoying today’s weather, but yesterday was glorious. It’s the weekend we will be celebrating Bert’s retirement from DuPont after 37 years with the company. The girls will be down, we are having it all catered and in the banquet room of a restaurant/bar. Should be fun, we even have a trio band playing. Enjoy your weekend too.

    1. You’re most welcome Zeba, happy to be one of the co-hosts. Stir fries are so versatile, healthy and simple, there’s nothing like a meal that can be prepped and cooked in under 30 minutes. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  2. Stir-fries have become my go-to meal lately. After a busy day, it is one way I can guarantee I’m getting much needed nutrients is my belly! Love the variation you’re offering today, Loretta. Thanks for sharing your method. 🙂

    1. Thank you Nancy, you can’t really go wrong with stir-fries, adding chicken for extra protein is another way I like to serve it. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    1. Thanks Julie, I too love to plant those cherry tomatoes in a pot, jewels they definitely are! I’m so behind in the blogging world, it has been such a busy past few weeks, but I hope to catch up real soon. Just checking out all the entries for this week one last time before I make my selections. I hope you’re doing well. I think our 80+ deg weather is finally here to stay 🙂

    1. Thank you Shari, so kind of you to visit. I’m afraid the weather has done a right about turn and it is beastly hot here. So stir fries will have to be kept on the back burner for a while 🙂

  3. I have been teaching my son cooking all of last week. I need to teach him easy vegetarian recipes because his flatmate (friend sharing his apartment ) happens to be vegetarian. This stir fry is going into his recipe book because it is a delicious and simple recipe. Thanks for sharing 👍 ☺

    1. Thank you Ana. What a great and resourceful Mom you are. Good for you. Your son will thank you for it, and it’s great that he is willing to learn from you. My mother was an amazing cook, and my Dad would always tell us to learn from her while we were still at home, but I never did. So kudos to your son. Glad he will be trying the recipe, it is quite simple, I’m sure he could add his own spin on it 🙂

      1. Thank you for all the good wishes and kind words dear Loretta. I am teaching him with a heavy heart because he needs to be away for a couple of years on his job, but I guess that is what a mom’s job is- teach them to be independent. You are an awesome cook – there’s no doubt about it but when we compare our culinary skills to our mothers we are always ĺagging behind..Have a wonderful weekend 💖
        Regards
        Ana

  4. Loretta,
    I am wondering how I missed this post:( I love quick stir fry recipes and this one looks awesome. The roasted veggies add such a punch don’t they? I am book marking it….better late than never, right?
