Quick & Easy Veggie Stir-fry (paleo, GF/DF)

Sometimes we get stuck in a rut with veggie side dish options and just need something new. Recipes don’t have to be fancy. Often times I just throw what veggies I can find in the kitchen together in a skillet and call it good! Try this quick and easy veggie stir fry. Add your own seasonings if you like… or add some chicken or beef to make a complete meal. I think we topped with some ground beef, chunks of avocado and some raw sauerkraut on the side. Yum!!



  • 2 zucchini (chopped)
  • 2 yellow squash (chopped)
  • 1 bunch of kale (washed and chopped)
  • 1 red onion (sliced thinly)
  • 2-4 Tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • salt & pepper
Slice your red onion. Use a large skillet and heat coconut oil to medium-high heat. Add onion first so it can start cooking and stir occasionally. Now, cut up the zucchini and yellow squash. Cut off the ends, cut in half lengthwise and then cut each half in half again for small pieces… now slice thinly. Add the zucchini and squash to the onions and stir. Take kale off stems and chop. I like to take a few washed leaves, roll them up and slice. Once zucchini and squash begin to get soft, add the kale, stir and cover. Once kale is cooked down (shouldn’t take too long), stir and add coconut aminos. You can add a little more or less… it’s up to you. Dish is done when veggies are soft and tender. Salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!

    I would like to try this recipe. What is, or what are some examples of coconut aminos? I feel like that’s a silly question, but I’m lost ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks, Jessica

      There is only one brand of Coconut Aminos that I know of and that is by Coconut Secret. They carry it at Natural Grocer and Whole Foods here in Austin. Amazon also has it!
