A vegetable and noodle stir fry is a quick and easy dish that uses fresh or frozen vegetables, cooked noodles and a savory sauce to create a satisfying and healthy meal

Ingredients:

  • 250g noodles
  • 1 onion
  • 1 punnet of mushrooms
  • 3 peppers
  • 1 carrot
  • spring onion

Seasoning: oil, garlic, ginger, soya sauce and spices

Optional: cooked scrambled eggs

Method:

  1. Give the mushrooms a quick gentle wash – you don’t want the mushrooms absorbing lots of liquid
  2. Slice mushrooms and peppers
  3. Peel and finely slice the onion
  4. Wash and prepare the spring onions
  5. Peel and cut the carrots into thin slices
  6. Once the veg has been prepared, add it all to a pan with oil and cook until they soften slightly
  7. Cook the noodles in pre-boiled water as per the packet instructions
  8. Slice garlic and ginger and add to the pan with the veg
  9. Once the noodles have cooked, drain them and add them to the pan and mix together well
  10. Add a few dashes of soya sauce
  11. Taste and adjust seasoning before serving

Meat options: If you want to add meat, add it at the start of the cooking process to allow it to cook thoroughly before adding the vegetables.

Vegetarian options: Cook eggs into a thin omelet, slice, and add to finish the stir fry off for a protein punch

Serving suggestions:
