Watching your weight?

If you are really watching your weight, just go easy on the noodles. You can also skip the oil all together.  It is really not required .

Where’s the beef?

You can easily add chicken to this dish. Just chop some chicken and cook it in the pan before you start adding the veggies. If you have chicken that is already cooked, just toss bite-sized pieces in during the last few minutes to warm it up.

Preparation tips

You can add or subtract any veggies you like to this dish.  It is very flexible and tastes great with any combination. So get creative with this one and have some fun.  You can also serve over brown rice or couscous if you do not have noodles handy.

If you like your veggies crunchy, you can reduce the overall cook time. If you like them soft, you can increase the cook time.

    I was surprised that I liked this as much as I did. I don’t normally like stir fries but this one was really good. The kids loved it. It was a nice, light sauce and wasn’t complicated. I can see how versatile this can be. We used broccoli, carrots, cabbage, and onion becaus those were the only veggies I had in the fridge. The added pineapple was really tasty. I used sesame seeds instead of cashews. I will definitely make this one again and again.

    Finally, I made a tasty stir fry! The secret was knowing which items to cook first and then adding the appropriate ones in succession. It came out perfect with just the right texture and crunchiness. The cashews were the whipped cream on top! Next time I would use less cayenne. Our lips were burning, but it was worth it.
