I like to enjoy the veggie base with tofu. The sauce is flavoursome and I know you will enjoy it. My kids eats this without the chilli.

    I love the look of this dish, and agree that you can’t beat a stir fry for a quick, easy but really tasty meal. I think I’ll have to give this one a go! Am pleased to link up to #TastyTuesdays this week, even if it is an embarrassing dud of a recipe that I’m sharing!

    YUM! looks delicious. I would need to find a substitute for the soy sauce as my 9 month eats with us now and I have to watch the salt levels. Any ideas? Thanks for hosting 🙂

    I love prawns but we don’t have them very much as Jon’s not a fan. I guess the beauty of stir fry is that it’s best made in smaller batches, so maybe I’ll make prawn for me and chicken for him.
