The Veggie Stir-Fry Cooking Time

Updated: Aug 9, 2019

The general rule to follow when it comes to stir fry veggies is: thicker and harder first. Denser vegetables such as carrots and aubergine require more cooking time than green leafy vegetables like spinach or pak choy.

I prefer when vegetables are crunchy so I tend to slightly undercook them. Feel free to add a couple of minutes if you like them softer.


  • Onion

  • Garlic

  • Ginger


  • Carrots

  • Bell peppers

  • Mushrooms

  • Asparagus

  • Edamame

  • Broccoli

To finish:

  • Snow peas

  • Leafy greens (spinach, kale, pak choi, etc.)

  • Courgette

I hope this helps!
