Question: How Do I Stir-fry Different Types of Vegetables?

From Farm2Work

<p>This article is copied from the following link:</p> <p></p> <p>&#8220;You’ve decided to a prepare a healthy stir-fry from scratch, using ingredients you have on hand. Not sure whether a certain vegetable is a good candidate for stir-frying? It all comes down to the density and moisture level of the vegetable.</p> <p>Answer:</p> <p>High moisture vegetables that are not too hard, like zucchini, sweet peppers, spinach and mung bean sprouts, can be quickly stir-fried at high heat without the addition of extra liquid.</p> <p>Denser, low moisture vegetables like broccoli and carrots, on the other hand, require more cooking time. Most recipes call for the vegetables to be stir-fried briefly and then boiled in a liquid such as chicken broth. Another option is to briefly blanch the vegetables prior to stir-frying.<br /> Many vegetables fall somewhere between these two extremes. Snow peas (also called sugar peas and snap peas) have medium moisture levels and thickness – they can be stir-fried dry or finished in a sauce. Asparagus, on the other hand, is a high moisture vegetable but relatively hard and thick – liquid is usually added.</p> <p>More Tips on Stir-frying Vegetables:</p> <p>For all vegetables, cut them into uniform size before stir-frying. This ensures that they will cook evenly.<br /> Be sure the vegetables are thoroughly drained before stir-frying. (A good tip is to wash the vegetables and leave them to drain earlier in the day). Wet vegetables can ruin a stir-fry.<br /> On the other hand, if vegetables become too dry during stir-frying, they can burn. To prevent this, splash them with a bit of Chinese rice wine, dry sherry, or water while stir-frying.<br /> Keep moving the vegetables during stir-frying. This also helps prevent them burning.&quot;</p>
