Our Thai Stir-Fried Greens and Turkey recipe is a house favorite, so in our ongoing effort to eat more vegetables, we’ve adapted the original to create our equally delicious Vegan Thai Stir-Fry. In this version, we are using Beyond Beef Plant-Based Ground and a mix of baby spinach and baby kale since they are readily available year-round. If you have the option of picking up stir-fry greens from seasonal farmers markets, we highly recommend it.Print
Vegan Thai Stir-Fry
Vegan Thai Stir-Fry
- Total Time: 20 minutes
- Yield: Serves 6
- 1 pound Beyond Beef Plant-Based Ground
- 3 large garlic cloves, minced
- 1 medium yellow onion cut into thin half-moons (try to keep the slices intact)
- 1 red bell pepper cut into thin strips, from top to bottom
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 green onion, thinly sliced and reserved for garnish
- 3 packed cups baby spinach*
- 3 packed cups baby kale*
- 1/4 cup coconut aminos
- 1 tbsp Lakanto Golden Sweetener
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds, reserved for garnish
- 1 tsp chili garlic sauce
- 1 tsp dried sweet or Thai basil, or 1 tbsp fresh minced
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
- Optional: Lime wedges and steamed cauliflower rice for serving
- In a large measuring cup, thoroughly combine lime juice, garlic, chili garlic sauce, coconut aminos, basil, sesame oil, and Lakanto and set aside.
- Prep all vegetables, reserve the green onion separately, add the bell pepper and greens to a large bowl and set aside.
- Heat a large sauté pan with a lid over high heat. Add avocado oil and onions in a single layer, sear one side for up to a minute, then flip and sear the other side. Remove seared onions from pan and set aside.
- Reduce heat to medium-high, add the Beyond Ground and quickly break apart into an even layer. Season with ground black pepper and cook one minute. Flip and cook for one more minute.
- Add the sauce mixture to the Beyond Ground and toss to distribute evenly. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking for two more minutes, stirring frequently.
- Remove from heat, quickly add onions, greens, and peppers to the pan (layer on top of the Beyond Ground), cover and let sit for one minute. Yes, this looks like a ridiculous amount of greens, but they will wilt down significantly, and continue to wilt while the ingredients are hot.
- Toss one more time and serve immediately, garnished with green onion slices and sesame seeds. Serve with steamed cauliflower rice and lime wedges, if desired.
*Must use baby greens to ensure quick and similar wilt times. We used a combination of baby kale and baby spinach for texture. However, you can use either one, or baby stir-fry greens. We also keep the peppers crunchy, cooking them just enough to warm through.
Refrigerate leftovers in a glass airtight container up to three days.
