Honey Mustard Stir Fry

There are just some nights when Frog Prince and I crave a plate full of veggies.  Does that ever happen to you?  

Great.  I knew we were strange.  

We wanted a stir fry of sorts, but didn't have anything good to marinade the veggies with as we were out of soy sauce and every non-cream based sauce recipe calls for, you guessed it, soy sauce.  


So, we went with what we had.  

Frog Prince mixed up a spicier version of the sauce -- mustard, honey, water, cornstarch, pepper... lots and lots of pepper.  

I went with a more dainty and less sweat-producing sauce of simple mustard and honey.  

Drizzled over the sauteed veggies and served with brown rice, it was a delicious {and quick} dinner.  

Honey Mustard Stir Fry - Finding Joy in My Kitchen

1 medium bell pepper (we used half yellow, half orange)
1 large handful of sweet pea pods
1 (14oz) bag of frozen veggies (cauli, broccoli and carrots)
1 T olive oil
2 T spicy brown mustard
2 T honey

Begin by chopping the veggies and sauteeing them in olive oil for about 5 minutes.  

While the veggies cook away, combine the mustard and the honey in a small bowl.  

Mix until blended and then set aside.  

When the veggies are crisp-tender, or done to your liking, serve them atop a bed of brown rice.


Drizzle the honey mustard sauce over the top of the veggies.  

Then, enjoy your plate full of veggies.

  1. I can't say that I ever crave a big plate of veggies, but I wish I did. It would be so much better for me then that bowl of ice cream!! :)
    I love the idea of just a plan honey mustard sauce for a stir fry...it sounds so delicious!

  2. My kids and I are huge veggie fans! My husband...not so much! This would be great for lunch one day for the kids and I! I never would have thought to use a honey mustard sauce, but I love the idea!

  3. Yes there are times when I do crave a big ol plate of veg. These look like they'd satisfy that craving too! Great idea with the mustard sauce, I bet it was nice & bright & fresh, just perfect with veggies!

  4. Love this! It looks and sounds delicious. I'm a huge fan of mustard and honey too so have to try this. Thanks!

  5. looks quite tasty, Usually on Mondays I am carving a nice healthy bowl of veggies.

  6. This looks delicious! Consider this on my list ...

  7. I definitely crave platefuls of veggies, but the hubby?? No way! :) This look super delicious!!

  8. I get cravings for veggies too, lots of veggies! My family thinks I'm weird. I love this honey mustard stir fry - looks delicious!

  9. I'm so glad you were out of soy sauce! :) I think this is a great discovery. I find that most of my stir fries are of the Asian soy-sauce variety, and that can get a little boring. This looks like such an interesting twist. Thanks!

  10. That sounds really good and the pictures are so pretty! I often crave a platefull of veggies!

  11. holy cow this looks good! its 9 am and my tummy is craving this!

    thanks for sharing!

  12. Being a vegan....I often crave full plates of veggies. What a great idea plus soy sauce has a ton of salt. Have you ever tried quinoa? Use it instead of rice and you have a complete protein!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
