There are are a few tips that you can use when it comes to making this easy food idea, so it doesn't end up tasting just like soy sauce.

Nuts and seeds. Peanuts might be regular stir-fry toppers, but they are not the only nuts you might try. Good additions to stir-fries include cashews, almonds, or sesame seeds for added crunch and richness. If you add the nuts into your wok with all of the other ingredients, they will soften as they absorb the sauce, which can be nice. But you can also try toasting the nuts or seeds separately and then sprinkle them over your finished plate, like Parmesan cheese, for the optimal crunch. Fresh ginger. Ginger is an ingredient that will add some serious zing to your healthy stir-fry recipe. Keep a ginger root in your fridge, where it will stay good for a long time. Peel the ginger with a spoon and then grate some into your frying pan at the same time you add in the garlic. A good tip is that you can grate your garlic, too. Marinate your protein. If you mix up a marinade recipe the night before and allow your sliced or cubed tofu or meat to soak overnight, your protein will be ready to go by dinnertime. To avoid soggy tofu, you want to pre-bake the pieces in a hot oven around 375° F until they are golden-brown before adding them into the stir-fry recipe. Skip the rice. Instead of plating your stir-fry recipe over a bed of rice, try spooning the stir-fry recipe over a scoop of quinoa, lentils, or noodles. Vinegar. A common problem of stir-fry recipes is over-saltiness, which is often a result of the heavy reliance on soy sauce. A splash of rice vinegar you might also try dark rice vinegar is a welcome addition of acid to the recipe mix which will give the stir fry recipe another dimension. Seaweed. Seaweed is a crunchy, and earthy stir fry addition. Seaweed will give your stir-fry some texture and extra flavor. Try crumbling strips of dried seaweed over the top of stir-fry as a garnish.By following some of these basic tips you can come up with stir fry recipe variations you will be sure to love.
