Step 1

To make our delicious Thai-style stir fry, we are using a variety of colorful vegetables including carrot, tomato, sweet red chili, shitake mushrooms, snow peas, and cucumber. You can substitute and change the vegetables as you like, just be sure to cook the hard vegetables first and add in the soft ones like tomato and cucumber to cook for just a bit near the end.

Step 2

Heat a deep frying pan or wok over a medium flame, adding the vegetable oil. Let it sit for a minute until it gets good and hot, but not smoking. Add the garlic and let it cook for just a few seconds.

Step 3

Add the onion and let it cook for a little bit, then add the carrot. We'll let the carrot cook for about 2 minutes or so, because we need give them more time to start to soften up.
