Peanut Satay Stir-Fry

November 06, 2018 at 10:57 AM

This Peanut Satay Stir fry is a staple for me and my partner, especially on those late working nights! I love stir fries. Everything just goes into a big wok, and you can use up any vege's that are almost past their expiry date. Here's a really easy and tasty stir-fry that is nutritionally balanced, and helps you get your 5+ of vege a day. You can make it high or low carbohydrate based on your needs (just reduce or leave out the rice noodles). Enjoy! x
