Sprout Stir Fry with Spelt Noodles and Mint Dressing

Serves 2

About this recipe

A simple, colourful stirfry that takes minutes. I crave this after work and with the ingredients waiting for me in the fridge it takes no time at all.

Packing in  3 portions of vegetables is easy with this beautiful dressing that brings to life all the vegetables. The chestnuts add texture, but if you can find the water chestnuts from Asian supermarkets, even better!

  • 150g Spelt noodles - boiled for 3 minutes (or alternative gluten free noodles)
