A deliciously simply stir-fry for you today. I love a stir-fry as a simple healthy dinner. This one uses rice noodles which cook almost instantly and are so lovely and filling.
To make it even easier, feel free to use a bag of stir-fry vegetables (try to get one that contains water chestnuts as they really add something to this dish).
I love that this is a proper filling dinner suitable for dieters and non-dieters alike and still has only 417 calories.
