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!

    I love this, it looks so delicious! My mouth is watering. I am pinning this so I can work it into our meal plan, everything you post is always simple but fabulous. I love that, and keep coming back! And with my gluten issue, this is right up my alley.

    BTW, I would love to play host for you, I have a new Wednesday linkup and would be excited to have you link up a post. Have a great week.

    I’m such a fan of quick meals at the moment – eating once Baby H is in bed has it’s disadvantages. But this is quick and yummy, so win win 🙂

      Yay I remember that well, heck I still eat quickly when eating with the kids or just don’t get chance to eat slowly enough! Enjoy x

    This looks so yum – love easy but bursting with flavour food during the week. The photos are stunning too – makes me want to pick a prawn off the screen and eat it! x

    I love prawn dishes – did one myself for this link up. This dish looks really nice and I’m with you – I like a bit of a kick to my food!

  6. Amy (Feeding inn)

    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 🙂

  7. Isabella

    Oh my goodness those prawns look so juicy and delicious! Love a good stir fry, so healthy and it actually fills you up! All of your five a day in one meal too! x

    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.

  9. Ellen

    Oooh, this looks lovely, I’m not the biggest fan of stir fry’s but fancy trying this one at the weekend!

  10. Jenny

    I love stir fry this sounds like a great one for Saturday night and wine with the hubby. Just delicious thank you so much for hosting.

  11. Marta

    We love stir fry around here too…so funny how it’s a universal trait with kids to have to modify…this will be my life for the next 20 years…plus cleaning.
