Quick & healthy vegetable noodle stir fry

This is a recipe for a super quick supper for both children and adults to enjoy. It is also vegetarian, healthy and very low in fat.


It can be ready in a matter of minutes and it will taste far better than any shop bought ready-made noodles. The ingredients for this dish are the sort of things you probably already have in your store cupboard. The vegetables can also be tailored to whatever you happen to have in your fridge. So, if you don’t have any mushrooms, just swap them for some courgette or even a red pepper. Just go with whatever takes your fancy as long as you keep the quantities roughly the same, the dish will turn out just fine!
