For us, summer means less time in the kitchen and more time outside in “the big room” – so of course, the less fuss involved in the preparation of meals, the better we like it. And what could be less fussy (and more delicious) than a stir fry prepared al fresco on the grill? Utilizing any of the super fresh, yummy vegetables of summer, you really can stir fry practically anywhere even over a camper hotplate or an open fire.
The following list is just a small sample of our favorite summer fresh vegetables for stir frying: green beans, peppers, onions, eggplant slices, carrots, zucchini, pattypan or yellow squash, chard, sugar snap and snow peas, asparagus, and of course sweet corn. Use your imagination when combining vegetables for a stir fry and never be afraid to experiment. Summer is the best time of year to enjoy all the flavorful benefits and easy preparation of vegetarian food. So, go on…stir fry!
