Quick & Easy Plant-Based Stir Fry + $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

If you are looking for a quick & easy, plant-based wholesome meal, look no further: I have a plant-based stir-fry recipe for you today!
Any meatless eater will tell you that the most common question they receive from carnivores is, BUT WHAT DO YOU EAT?!I have been asked this question for the last four and half years, whenever it is learned that I changed the way I eat to follow a meatless diet.Half of the people who ask the what do you eat question asks it in a condescending way, and the other half are honestly curious because they have considered cutting back on animal proteins but aren’t sure how to incorporate more plant-based meals into their diet.

Plant Based Stir Fry Using Success Whole Grain Brown Rice

After briefly explaining to the questioners that my diet is probably more diverse now as a meatless eater than before making the diet switch, I jump to discussing how quick and easy it is to prepare wholesome plant-based meals.

As a meatless eater, advanced meal prep is rarely necessary. There’s no need for defrosting meats or worrying about cooking to proper temperatures.

The beauty of plant-based meals not only involves incorporating nutrient dense whole foods rich in vitamins, minerals, complex carbs and proteins but doing so in a matter of minutes.

I like to keep these ingredient staples in my kitchen at all times because I can rely on combining them quickly to create a wholesome, satisfying meal:

Success® Whole Grain Brown Rice

Frozen Vegetables

Organic Chickpeas


Stir Fry sauces (Low Sodium Soy Sauce, Sweet Chili sauce, Island Soyaki)

Plant Based Stir Fry Using Success Brown Rice

With Success® Whole Grain Brown Rice, you can enjoy the same taste and similar nutritional benefits of long cooking brown rice, but in ¼ the cooking time. I just pop a bag in a microwave safe bowl filled with water and microwave it for ten minutes as I get my chickpeas and avocado ready on a plate.

My son, who is NOT a meatless eater, loves Success Rice so quite often I make a bag of the rice to use for both of our meals. It’s great when we can share meal ingredients even though he is a carnivore and I am a meatless eater.

This plant-based recipe is a terrific source of complex carbohydrates, perfect for us runners. Success® White and Brown Rice are complex carbohydrates, gluten-free, cholesterol free and sodium free. Additionally, Success Brown Rice is 100% Whole Grain. Success Rice does not contain additives or preservatives and is non-GMO too!

We need complex carbohydrates to fuel our muscles, which is something that was lacking in my diet before becoming a meatless eater. I was so focused on proteins that adding brown rice to my plate was an afterthought, often neglected if I want to be honest.

As soon as I started building my meals around plant-based sources and including complex carbohydrates like sweet potatoes and brown rice, I saw an immediate positive difference in my running ability. My muscles had the energy to move and recover in order to move again.

Plant Based Stir Fry Using Success Whole Grain Brown Rice

This plant-based meal is also a complete source of protein, which is very important to know about as a meatless eater. Complete sources of protein include all 9 essential amino acids, which is often hard to achieve through plant-based proteins alone.

Our bodies cannot produce the essential amino acids (as it can the non-essential) so it’s really important we consume these complete proteins on a regular basis to aid our muscles in building and repair.

By combining the organic chickpeas with Success Whole Grain Brown Rice, all 9 essential amino acids are achieved. While they say it’s okay to not have all 9 essential amino acids combined in one meal and that they can be broken up throughout the day to receive the same benefits, I think it’s awesome when we can achieve them in one delicious dish!

  7. Katie says

    Breakfast for dinner is always quick at our house! Whether it’s eggs or pancakes! But loaded veggie burritos are also a hit and easy to make on a weeknight.

  8. Abbie says

    My favorite easy meal is taco salad – with a ton of avocado! I’m 35 weeks pregnant, and avocados are my recent craving 🙂 The Success rice makes a great, easy addition!

  9. Denise M says

    I love to make chili because i can throw it in the slow cooker in the morning and its done. Ground turkey and lots of tomatoes, beans and leftover veggies

  10. paige c says

    my favorite quick meal is cauliflower fried rice! I usually use beef less crumbles, a mix of veggies and of course cauliflower rice and lots of spices. All made in one pan in a matter of minutes!

  11. Angie Jerde says

    My go-to quick and easy meal is salads! I take all my goodies that are left over in the fridge, pile them up on spinach/lettuce and call it a salad : )
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    On those crazy, hectic weekdays, I like to make a beef stir fry with tons of veggies.

  15. Julie Wood says

    My favorite quick and easy meal is my Sweet and Sour Chicken Rice Bowls. They are so delicious.

  16. Jenny says

    My favorite quick and easy meal would have to be a stuffed sweet potato — greens, beans and a drizzle of tahini and I’m good to go!

  17. Danielle says

    My go-to quick and easy meal is a big salad with tuna salad made with avocado rather than mayo.

  18. Jordan D. says

    I love crockpot recipes. Turkey white bean chili is my favorite in the winter. I also loved grilled romaine with grilled chicken sausage or chicken and veggie kabobs in the summer.

  19. steph says

    I’m filipino by way of Charleston. Rice for all 3 meals (and rice pudding for dessert – ha!) is not uncommon 😉

  20. Madeline says

    I love to eat potato salad for a meal, especially with a lot of herbs from the garden.

  21. Rachel says

    My favorite quick and easy meal is cereal. Haha, just kidding. Actually I make a big one pot stir-fry. I get frozen veggies, pre-cooked chicken sausage, and anything else I want to use up (potatoes? fruit? etc.) and cook it all up in a pot with salt and pepper. Voila, dinner is served! Can serve with tortillas or rice if it is a more plain meat and veggies mix.

  22. Jeffrey says

    My favorite quick and easy meal is spaghetti with meatballs (I make a big batch and have them ready in the freezer) with roasted broccoli.

  23. Emily H. says

    I totally agree that stir-fries are quick and easy. We have a “silly dinner” (finger foods – including lots of fruits and veggies) if everyone is in a grazing mood and can’t choose something.

  24. Jane says

    My quick and easy meal is eggs!!! I scramble then quickly and usually serve with carrots and hummus, which I always have on hand!!

  25. Alexis says

    When I’m alone for dinner, or need something quick and easy, I always make what I call a “snack plate”. This usually is veggies and pita chips with hummus, chicken and cheese rollups, and some fruit

    One of our favorite quick and easy meals is spaghetti.

    I love eggs with spinach and peppers. I also love to make spiraled noodles out of veggies and add marinara, a little nutritional yeast on top for that cheesy flavoring!

  28. Cynthia C says

    My go-to quick meal is angel hair with garlic, tuna and frozen peas. I can have it ready in 15 minutes!

  29. Susan Smith says

    My favorite quick and easy meal to make is chicken and shrimp stir fry with fresh veggies and rice!

  30. Shannon says

    I love pulling the meat off a rotisserie chicken and adding it to rice with some veggies. Quick and easy!

  31. Denise L says

    Tacos are my favorite quick & easy meal. You can use ground beef, leftover chicken or pork, and customize them to everybody’s liking. Definitely a weeknight go-to for me.

  32. Tracy says

    Hmmm…I have a few in my repertoire – necessary for throwing together post baseball! My husband’s fav – I take frozen salmon, quickly thaw, marinate it in Soyvay and then broil for 12 minutes. I put it on top of white, brown or a 90 second pouch quinoa/brown rice blend (Success rice would come in handy here!) and steamed broccoli or sugar snap peas. Super easy!

  33. Anastasia Falling says

    Wow, this looks so delicious!!! I might have a new favorite! 🙂 One of my fav easy recipes is just throwing a bunch of ingredients in the crock pot and letting them cook all day long 🙂 Easy pot roast or yummy nacho dip! 🙂

    I love making stir fry especially in the summer when I have so many vegetables straight from my garden or at the farmer’s market.

  36. Jerry Marquardt says

    My favorite quick and easy meal is some Success Rice with French Onion Soup! Yes, you would have never known, but the rice helps with the coup to prevent the showdown of the salty bullion.
