Vegan Stir Fry Vegetable Noodles
This simple but tasty vegan dish of noodles is a great little standalone snack dish, but even better with ribs, or crispy tofu, pictured here with my Chinese Ribless Ribs, recipe here
For the noodles, most supermarkets have dried rice noodle which are vegan, some have fresh too. Check the ingredients, but I find if they are white, they are egg free!
I got mine from the world food section at my Morrisons, in the Indian section funnily enough - they were cheaper here than the Morrisons own brand rice noodles!
We like our food spicy, so just use the amount of chilli you feel right for you
This serves 2 generously as an accompaniment, so double up as required
