Lazy vegan Recipe: Broccoli and Cannellini Bean Satay Stir Fry

Happy Friday lazy green people! We made it through the week! 🙂

I’ve decided to switch my lazy vegan recipes from Meatless Monday to Frisky Friday, so it coincides with a) when we need a quick and easy recipe the most and b) when my weekly veg box has been delivered so I can incorporate what’s in season for the week!

This week’s veg box had a LOT of broccoli and carrots which are two of my most favorite ingredients for a quick and easy stir fry. But I have been trying to cut down my intake of soy, so I thought I would mix it up, using Cannellini beans for my protein fix instead of Tofu. The results were so hearty, yet fresh and zingy I just had to share!

Vegetable and Cannellini Bean Satay Stir Fry



  • 1 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 1 tin of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 whole broccoli, roughly chopped (include the stalks too they are yummy!)
  • 2 carrots, chopped into rough chunks (no need to peel just give them a wash)
  • A handful of green beans
  • 1/2 onion roughly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Tamari Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 1 inch of fresh ginger, finely sliced
  • 1 Tsp chilli flakes



  1. Heat the sesame oil and gently fry the garlic, ginger and chilli.
  2. Add the carrots, cannellini beans, broccoli stalks, green beans and onion and stir fry on a high heat for about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add the soy sauce, peanut butter and water. Stir thoroughly
  4. Once the beans begin to soften, add the broccoli florets  and flash fry for a few minutes longer, making sure to coat the broccoli with sauce.
  5. Serve with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, and noodles or rice if you fancy (though its just as filling on its own!)
