how to prepare frozen veggies to stir-fry?

_Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge_ emphasizes that vegetables must be "dry" before adding to the wok.

The book does not recommend using packaged pre-mixed frozen "stir-fry vegetables," but as a practical matter, those are most of what I cook - from Trader Joe's, specifically. And they end up soggy in the wok, probably because the vegetables are not dry out of the package.

How best to quickly dry frozen/thawing vegetables?
