Simple Onion and Bell Pepper Stir-Fry

This is the ultimate Asian comfort food: easy to make, simply delicious, and goes really well with plain white rice.

It doesn’t get any easier than this. Stir-frying is already one of the simplest cooking techniques, and the onion-and-bell-pepper combo is one of my all-time favorites.

The onion’s aroma mingles with the crispy freshness of the bell pepper, and everything comes together in a flurry of savory smells and bold zing. It’s the perfect marriage. Add some soy sauce and garlic for extra flavor, and you’re golden. 

Simple Onion and Bell Pepper Stir Fry


  • 2 red or white onions
  • 2 bell peppers
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • dash of salt
  • dash of pepper


1. Chop up the onions and peppers into similar shapes of your choosing. Also, mince the garlic.

I'm legitimately surprised my knife skills haven't atrophied in the last 5 months

2. Heat oil in a pan, throw in onions and peppers and garlic, and stir.


3. After a minute, add the soy sauce. Season to taste.

Gahhhh. Look at those perfect crispy vegetables, stir-fried to a delicious brown color. The perfect comfort food. 

Consider me comforted.
