Ginseng Stirfry Recipe

Canadian ginseng makes a delightful addition to your dinner table, and works perfectly in most stir-fry recipes. Some people add Ginseng root powder to their marinade, but we prefer it diced finely and added with your veggies!

Prep Time: 5 minutes + marinating time

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Makes: 2-3 servings


1 lb meat, meat substitute or tofu, cubed
1 cup marinade of your choice
2 tsp Canadian ginseng root, diced finely
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
2 cups snap peas
1 227g package mushrooms, shiitake, crimini or white
3 stalks green onion, thinly sliced
2 cups cooked rice


In a large bowl or ziplock bag marinate meat, meat substitute or tofu for 15 minutes to 24 hours.

In a wok or frying pan, heat ½ tbsp oil. Add protein/tofu; reserve marinade. Stir fry for 5 minutes or until cooked through.

Add red pepper, snap peas, and mushrooms; sauté until slightly softened, about 3-5 minutes. Add diced Canadian ginseng root and sauté for 1 minute.

Add reserved marinade or sauce. Sauté for 2-3 minutes; until marinade is heated through.

Serve over rice.
