2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables

  • Scrub or peel the carrots and trim the ends; cut the carrots in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Peel and cut the onion into enough ¼-inch-thick slices to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the white parts for the stir-fry and the green parts for garnish.


Cook the vegetables

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the carrots, zucchini, onion, and white parts of the scallions, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Do not clean the pan. While the vegetables are cooking, prepare your protein.


Prep your protein

  • Steak, chicken, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Chicken breasts or pork loin chops: Pat the meat dry with a paper towel; cut into 1-inch strips. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; crumble or cut into ½-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.


Cook your protein; finish the stir-fry

In the same pan used for the vegetables, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. 

Add the cashew-plum stir-fry sauce base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until your protein is cooked through, about 30 seconds for regular shrimp; 1 to 2 minutes for jumbo shrimp or scallops; 2 to 3 minutes for steak, pork, tofu, or plant-based chicken; and 4 to 6 minutes for chicken. Stir in the vegetables, remove from the heat, and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the stir-fry to individual bowls, garnish with the green parts of the scallions, and serve.
