No Oil Broccoli Brussels Sprouts Stir-Fry

No oil broccoli Brussels sprouts stir-fry is so delicious! You’ll want to make this time and time again, using whatever vegetables you have on hand. Making stir-fry without oil is so satisfying. I never liked the oil all over my lips when eating stir-fry and this is the perfect remedy for that. Once you have made this, you can enjoy experimenting with vegetable and broth amounts to suit your needs.

While it looks like there is a lot of vegetable slicing and prep, that is pretty much all there is to cooking this delectable dish. Once the veggies are in the wok or skillet, the cooking only takes about 10 minutes and then you are ready to eat! Prepping the Brussels sprouts probably takes the most time, since you have to cut off the stem end and remove some of the outer leaves on each sprout. But compared to hanging over a hot stove, that’s not too bad.

I hate wasting any food or ingredients. If you don’t feel like you use fresh ginger enough to keep it around, try freezing it! I buy a piece of ginger root and peel it with a potato peeler when I get home. Then I wrap it in aluminum foil or any tight wrapping to prevent freezer burn. I just pop it in the freezer, then shave pieces off with the potato peeler as needed! It works like a gem.

Depending on what I feel like, I use both soy sauce and coconut aminos soy free seasoning sauce (it looks like soy sauce). If you haven’t tried coconut aminos, the taste is very similar to soy sauce. Each bottle will contain a wide range of amino acids, B vitamins, minerals, and has a low glycemic index. You can find a bottle of coconut aminos in most grocery stores. Coconut aminos are much lower in sodium (90mg as opposed to 590mg in the same amount of low sodium soy sauce).

I use red and yellow bell pepper in this recipe, but any bell pepper can be used. I like varying the colors in the dish. Even if you are cooking for yourself, it’s important to make the food vibrant. Colorful food looks inviting and varying the colors also varies what nutrients you are getting. So when you start selecting your own stir-fry vegetables, keep that in mind.
