Lemon & Ginger Stir Fry | Vegan, GF

Hi guys, as promised, this is another really easy summer recipe that involves minimal cooking time. I love making a stir fry when I’m short on time or have an excess of vegetables in my fridge that I need to use up. It’s a great way to boost your vitamin intake and get in your 5-a-day with one meal. Sticking with the summer friendly recipe theme, I decided to switch things up from my regular black bean sauce and make a fresh lemon and ginger alternative.  

Obviously, you can adapt this to include your own favourite vegetables and take out anything you’re not too keen on. I know everyone has their own preferences when it comes to how soft or crunchy they like their vegetables so for reference, the cooking times in this recipe makes for slightly crunchy broccoli, firm beansprouts, soft mushrooms and the peppers are somewhere in-between.  

As many of you will know, I don’t eat real meat or fake meat, but I love how easily adaptable dishes like this are for people on all diets. You could very easily prep some tofu/ chicken/ whatever and add that to your dish too.  

I opted to serve mine with black bean spaghetti as my noodle of choice for a protein boost. I haven’t included noodle cooking instructions below as that varies a lot depending on which ones you choose, so remember to factor that in.

    Yum! This looks like such a fresh, healthy and tasty recipe! I love broccoli and slightly crunchy is the best way! I’ve never heard of black bean spaghetti, it’s great that it gives a protein boost, will have to look out for it in the supermarket. Great post Sophie, loving your summer dishes <3 xx
