1. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat.

2. Add the onion and garlic to the wok and stir fry for about 1 minute until fragrant.

3. Add the bell peppers, carrot, zucchini, broccoli, snap peas, and mushrooms to the wok. Stir fry for about 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are crisp-tender.

4. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, oyster sauce (if using), sesame oil, salt, and pepper.
