5-Minute, Protein-Packed Vegetarian Stir Fry

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.

You guys know I am all about the quick, easy, and healthy meals, right? Well, this recipe for vegetarian stir fry is definitely a winner. It took me just 5 minutes to make. For real! I actually timed myself. Well, technically, I timed Quinn’s nap and he slept for 6 minutes (this kid does not sleep during the day), and I finished cooking the whole meal in that amount of time. Anyway, here is a delicious, nutritious, and satisfying recipe for you! Enjoy!

5-minute protein-packed vegetarian stir fry


  • 1 16-ounce bag of frozen stir fry veggies
  • 1 cup chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • rice (I used boil-in-bag brown rice)
  • soy sauce
  • extra virgin olive oil


Cook rice as directed. Meanwhile, in a large pan on the stove top, add 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil, stir fry veggies, edamame, chickpeas, and as much soy sauce as you like. Cook until veggies are warm and no longer frozen.

  1. Stir-fry is such a great, quick meal that always hits the spot. One of my favorite additions is spice (ginger or cumin) and sometimes I throw in some pineapple or mango for a fun twist.

  2. New reader here! Made this last night, my vegetarian husband and meat-eating self both loved it! This will definitely a weekly/bi-weekly thing from now on! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I just love veg stir fry. I prepare it with all sort of vegetables at home, specially considering green, red and yellow bell peppers, baby corn, broccoli and some times a little bit of cottage cheese. You have instigated me to do one more adventure with chick peas and next I will try with additional sprouts. Thank you
