Vegan stir fry recipe

Chef Jeena has been very busy in the kitchen today and has a beautiful vegan vegetable stir fry recipe for you to cook.

The vegetable stir fry is served with rice noodles and vegan soy sauce, you really must serve this tasty vegan stir fry with soy sauce because it really enhances the flavour of the noodles.

This is also a gluten free stir fry recipe as the noodles are made from rice and the soy sauce is gluten free and vegan.

Chef uses a few pinches of ground herbs and spices including kaffir lime leaves, lemon grass and aniseed then finishes off the dish by adding a spoonful of creamed coconut at the end of cooking to give the stir fry an extra punch of delicious flavour.

Tofu and chilli are optional in this vegan stir fry recipe - this dish tastes fabulous with or without chilli and tofu.

We really enjoyed eating this delicious meal tonight in Jeenas Kitchen.

The sweet ginger pieces, fragrant herbs and spices, creamy subtle coconut, tasty filling rice noodles and delicious soy sauce was so very tasty -any one for seconds ?? YES please !
