To be honest, I have no idea why I haven’t posted my favourite stir fry vegetables before given how often I make it. In fact, it would have to be one of my favourite and most often made meals. Oh that’s right, I do. It’s gobbled up before I get a chance to take a photo!!
My boyfriend has been away with work for the last 3 weeks (he gets home today – YAY!), so, whilst he was away I thought I’d take the opportunity to make my stir fry vegetables with udon noodles so I could finally get a photo of it and share it with you. I love that he loves this dish because it’s healthy,quick and packed full of flavour. He counts my stir fry vegetables amongst one of his favourites along with my Asian Noodle Soup and Oven Roasted Cherry Tomato Risotto. It’s great to have a few dishes in your culinary repertoire that your loved ones truly enjoy.
One of the things I love about Asian food is that it’s fresh, fast and packed full of flavour. I also love how light and healthy it is and that you never end up with that uncomfortable full feeling from indulging.
