Recipe For Healthy Veggie Stir-Fry With Tuna

Healthy Recipe: Veggie Stir-Fry With Tuna

In our Healthy Recipe Group, FitSugar Community member Lauren shared this yummy recipe for a veggie stir-fry with tuna.

Once a week, my husband and I always make a stir-fry for dinner. Most of the time it is all vegetables since both of us often crave veggie dishes. But this last week, we opted to experiment with both fresh bamboo since I have only used canned and a half pound of tombo tuna. The bamboo shoots were much more tasty fresh than the canned counterpart and a wonderfully crunchy addition to my stir-fry. There was not a ton of tuna in the stir-fry but it was nice touch of protein for the dish. I love stir-frys since you can add whatever you have on hand!

Recipe For Healthy Vegetable Tuna Stir-Fry


  1. 1 shallot, finely chopped
  2. 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  3. 2 carrots, peeled and chopped into 1/4 inch slices
  4. 2 small green zucchini, chopped into 1/2 inch slices
  5. 1/2 cup fresh bamboo, chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
  6. 1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
  7. 1/2 cup frozen soy beans
  8. 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  9. 1/2 pound fresh tuna, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  10. 3 tablespoons ginger, finely chopped
  11. 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
  12. 2-3 tablespoons lite soy sauce
  13. 1 tablespoon sriracha, if desired


  1. Use one tablespoon of oil and heat up the wok. Cook the shallots and garlic for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add more oil, if needed. The carrots go next since they will take longer to cook than the other ingredients. Cook for another 3-5 minutes until the carrots are just starting to get tender. Add the soy beans and bamboo shoots.
  3. Add zucchini and red bell pepper, ginger. Add the soy sauce and sriracha and cook until all of the veggies are nearly done.
  4. Just before the veggies are done, make space in the bottom of the wok and make sure it is hot. Place the bean sprouts on top of the veggies to heat them thoroughly. Sprinkle a little more oil in the bottom of the pan and sear the tuna. It should only take a few minutes at most. Serve with rice or just by itself with extra soy sauce, if needed.

Makes 4-6 servings.

hahhahah, soniabonya, I bought it a local grocery store but they have a pretty big selection of exotic fruits and veggies. I would try an Asian market if you have no luck at your local store.

Where do you find fresh bamboo? I know some growing in the apartment complex but I can't imagine myself cutting down a stalk. Lol.
