This stir fried pasta is a great dinner option be cause it only requires a few pantry staples and it’s a great way to use frozen vegetables! It’s budget friendly and easy to make. You can use any kind of pasta you like. I used Banza’s chickpea pasta to add a little more protein and fiber to the dish but you can use any kind you like.
I love finding healthy ways to serve pasta. If you agree be sure to check out my zucchini noodle vegetarian lasagna, my turkey bolognese, my Italian style zucchini noodle bake, and my how-to on spiralizing veggies.
How to Make Vegetarian Stir Fried Pasta
Benefits of Frozen Vegetables
Frozen vegetables offer several benefits compared to fresh or canned vegetables:
- Frozen vegetables are convenient as they can be stored for a long time and used whenever needed. They require no washing, peeling, or chopping, which saves time and effort. Plus, they can be easily added to soups, stews, or stir-fries, making meal preparation faster and easier.
- Frozen vegetables are typically picked and frozen at their peak ripeness when their nutrient content is at its highest. Freezing immediately after picking can preserve their nutritional value better than fresh vegetables, which may lose nutrients during transportation, storage, and handling.
- Frozen vegetables are often cheaper than fresh produce, especially when certain vegetables are out of season. This makes them a great option for those on a budget.
While both of those are going you can mix your sauce. Feel free to play around with quantities here and make it a flavor and consistency that you like best! To make this gluten free, use a gluten free soy sauce (tamari) or coconut aminos and use chickpea pasta, rice noodles, or other gluten free pasta.
In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:
- a large pan to cook veggies in
- a large pot to make pasta (and probably a strainer)
- a small cup and whisk (or fork) for the sauce
