Easy Soy Free Stir Fry

Looking for an easy stir fry with no soy or wheat?  Or an alternate that has soy and gluten but no meat? This turned out really good with just a handful of ingredients and made enough for meals for two over a couple of days.

Get some rice cooking in your steamer.

In a coffee cup mix a teaspoon of fresh grated ginger (or use half as much of powder), the juice of a lime (about a Tablespoon), a teaspoon of honey (or half teaspoon of sugar) and cayenne pepper to taste (I like mine spicy).

If you want to be totally soy free use gluten free breaded chicken bites.  I used the veggie chicken pieces since it was one of my meatless days -  I like the Gardein ones which do have a little gluten and soy in them. I cut them in pieces and just nuked for a couple of minutes then crisped them up in a fry pan.  Remove from heat and cover with lid to keep warm.

When the rice is a few minutes out from being done, stir fry in a tablespoon of olive oil half a bag of frozen oriental veggies (mine was a mix of broccoli, carrots, sugar snap peas, water chestnuts and red pepper).  When veggies are crisp/tender, toss with your protein and sauce and serve with rice.

Serves four.

  1. When I saw the title, I knew this was the perfect post for me. Soy is in so many things, it is nice to see things it is not in.

  2. Looks delicious! Apparently soy is in many foods that you would not suspect. As a vegetarian I probably eat a lot of it. I keep hoping your wonderful pics and recipes will inspire me to cook but since it hasn't happened in 60 years it likely isn't going to happen lol!

Thanks for visiting. Having been fortunate enough not to have to diet as a young woman - hitting middle age to find my Metabolism moved to Aruba and didn't even send a postcard was a rude awakening.
