One of my favorite ways to use up the produce in our kitchen is with a simple stir fry. If you’re planning a party or a family dinner, consider setting up a stir fry bar using all of your favorite vegetables, spices, and flavorful meats. For a recent Sunday dinner with family, I knew it would be a lot of fun to create our own stir fry bar. Bringing restaurant flavor (and service! ha!) to our home was a unique way to spend time together as a family. Plus, we had leftovers for days! The star of the show, Mazola® Corn Oil, helped us prepare this dish. A clinical study showed Mazola Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil.

o prepare our rainbow stir fry bar, I picked up everything I needed including Mazola Corn Oil. I looked for colorful vegetables like snap peas, broccoli, red onions, zucchini, red, yellow, and orange peppers, and carrots. Do you remember Roy G. Biv? I certainly do! I used a platter to display our vegetables in a colorful arrangement along with cooked chicken–our protein of choice for this meal idea.
We piled bowls high with turmeric rice (instead of white rice!) since it flavorful with added health benefits. We used our chicken seasoned with teriyaki (we used a no sugar version for a better-for-you option), and we finished off our stir fry bowls with a rainbow of veggies!
To get started with this rainbow stir fry, swap your regular cooking oil for Mazola Corn Oil. It’s an all-purpose cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy choice for your family. You can use it in baking, grilling, stir-fry, or mixing it up into a marinade or even a dressing. The possibilities are endless! Since corn oil has a neutral taste, it lets the flavor of your recipes stand out! Plus, Mazola has a smoke point higher than most cooking oils at 450°F so it performs well no matter how you are cooking!
Here’s how to prepare this dish in a hurry:
