I'm always inventing new recipes, and this quick vege noodle stir fry is not only easy to make, it is tasty and healthy too. I've eaten this twice in a week. A great way to add more vegetables to your weekly meals. This recipe is vegan-friendly, tweak the combination to add whatever vegetables you have in your fridge. The quantities below is a generous serving for two. Be creative with the spices too and add whatever combination you like.
