Prepare your vegetables ahead, so they are ready to go before start stir-frying them. This dish is so quick to make! So make sure you have all the vegetables ready to go into the wok, so you don’t burn them between steps.

Make sure your wok is hot before start cooking. This way, the veggies will cook faster and won’t stick to your pan’s bottom.

Don’t overcook the vegetables. The vegetables should be crispy, so make sure you stir fry them until they are tender but not so soft.
