The Veggie Stir-Fry Cooking Time

The general rule to follow when it comes to stir fry veggies is: thicker and harder first. Denser vegetables such as carrots and aubergine require more cooking time than green leafy vegetables like spinach or pak choy.

I prefer when vegetables are crunchy so I tend to slightly undercook them. Feel free to add a couple of minutes if you like them softer.


  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Ginger


  • Carrots
  • Bell peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • Asparagus
  • Edamame
  • Broccoli

To finish:

  • Snow peas
  • Leafy greens (spinach, kale, pak choi, etc.)
  • Courgette


I hope this helps!
