  • 1 18 oz Package Asian Style Vegetable Stir Fry I get this pre-cut veggie mix at Trader Joe's in the produce section!
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp powdered or fresh ginger
  • cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • pinch salt


  • First, mix up the coconut aminos, fish sauce, sesame oil, and rice vinegar in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Next, heat the olive oil in a large cast iron skillet or wok over medium heat. Add in the vegetables.
  • Add the minced garlic and ginger and saute for 4-5 minutes.
  • Pour the sauce over the vegetables and continue to cook for 4-5 minutes, until the sauce has reduced and thickened a bit.
  • Serve the Pad Pak over rice or on its own. Enjoy!


Frozen Stir Fry Vegetables: If you can't find a fresh vegetable mix that you want, frozen stir fry vegetables work just as well! Be aware that when using frozen vegetables, there will be more water in the pan as they defrost. Drain this excess water so your sauce isn't too thin.
Fresh Vegetables: If you do not have the pre-cut veggie mix from Trader Joe's and want to use fresh veggies, you can use: 1/2 cup cut-up green pepper, 1/2 cup broccoli florets, 1/2 cup cut red peppers, 1/2 cup snap peas, 1/4 cup sliced white onions, 1/4 cup sliced red onion, 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms, 1/4 cup sliced carrots, 1/4 cup bok choy, 8 baby corns
Vegan Stir Fry Sauce: If you're vegan, simply eliminate the fish sauce ingredient. Feel free to increase coconut aminos to make up for the omitted fish sauce.
Double Batch: If you're feeding a larger group or family, increase the number of servings on the printable recipe and it will automatically adjust the ingredient amounts!
Storage: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator and eat within 4-5 days. Reheat in the microwave or stovetop.
