Here’s another quick stir-fry recipe for those of you that love healthy and quick food! Feel free to use any medley of vegetables you have (fresh, frozen and/or seasonal). In retrospect, we wished we had used more broccoli!

Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions. Drain.
In the meantime, place the bell peppers, mushrooms and broccoli (or any other frozen vegetables you are using) into a microwavable dish. Defrost in the microwave. Drain. NB: You can cook your vegetables from frozen however, they will produce a lot of water that will increase your cooking time and they won’t be as ‘crunchy’ as stir-fry vegetables should be.
Meanwhile, prepare your sauce. Wash, peel and grate the ginger. Wash, remove the stem, de-seed and finely chop the chilli. Peel and dice the garlic. Wash, trim the ends and then chop the spring onion into half (tops & bottoms); finely slice the top half an save the remaining half for a garnish (if desired). Drain and wash the beans.
Place the water, soya sauce, sugar and flour into a large measuring jug. Whisk together until the sugar and flour has dissolved.
Place approximately 3/4 of the quantity of the beans into a food processor; save some to add to the stir-fry later on. Pulse until partially ‘broken down’.
Add the ginger, chilli, garlic, sliced spring onion and the contents of the measuring jug into the food processor.
Blend until blitzed; you should have a thick and ‘chunky’ sauce.
Transfer the sauce into the measuring jug. Taste and season/flavour it as necessary.
Peel and slice the white onion. Wash, peel, trim the ends and chop the dakion (if using) and the carrot into ‘chunky match-stick’ pieces. Chop the remaining spring onion into slices (if applicable).
Heat the oil in a large non-stick wok over a medium heat.
Add the onion, dakion (if applicable) and carrot. Gently stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
Add the bell peppers, mushrooms and broccoli. Stir-fry for approx. 2-4 minutes.
Add the remaining beans. Stir through.
Pour in the sauce. Stir through. Gently stir for approximately 1 minute or until the sauce thickens slightly. Remove form the heat.
Serve warm. Transfer the pasta into a pasta bowl or lipped plate. Top with the stir-fry mixture. Garnish with the seeds and remaining spring onion (if applicable).
