Immunity boosting stir fry


It’s always a good time to boost your immunity. That aside this is just really tasty too. Super cheap to make, packed with flavour and texture and is Vegan and Gluten Free.

Ingredients: (serves 1)


2 tablespoons of Sesame Oil

1 teaspoon of honey/syrup

1 teaspoon Soya Sauce

1 inch of grated ginger

2 cloves or garlic grated

Vegetables and noodles:

This is really up to you but what I find works are:

Sliced Red Cabbage (about 1/5th of a large head)

Grated carrot (one large or 2 small)

2-3 spring onions

2 handfuls of peanuts

1 serving of rice noodles

Optional extra vegetables

Tender stem Broccoli

Bok choy

Optional garnish:

Fresh coriander chopped

Toasted sesame seeds




In a bowl mix the ingredients for the sauce and set aside

Wash and chop all veggies

Option to place the peanuts on a tray in a low heat oven or grill and roast them slightly to release their flavour. This can also be done in a pan on the stove, tossing regularly.

Heat a frying pan/wok on medium heat and add the sauce letting it cook and sizzle for 3-5 minutes.

Add the veggies and stir well.

In a second pan place some boiling water and cook noodles as per instructions. Rice noodles generally only take a few minutes to cook.

Drain the water and add the noodles to the vegetable and sauce mix, stirring well to fully coat the noodles.

Add in the roasted peanuts and stir well.

Taste and season if needed.

Add optional garnishes (above).

Serve and enjoy!
