Method

  1. Put the noodles in a large bowl, cover with boiling water for 4 minutes, then drain and quickly rinse with cold water.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the soy sauce, orange juice and zest with the sugar and cornflour and set aside. Heat the oil in a wok, add the ginger and garlic and fry for 1 minute. Add the sherry and the peppers and fry for a minute more. Tip in the rest of the vegetables, except the water chestnuts and spring onions, and fry for another 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in the water chestnuts and spring onions, keeping a few spring onions for a garnish. Add the sauce and noodles and stir fry until hot. Sprinkle with the remaining spring onions and serve straight from the wok.

OK as a quick mid week family meal. A bit bland. Might make again with a bit more ginger and perhaps some chilli.

We enjoyed this - the predominant flavour is orange - it made a nice change from the usual stir fry sauces.

I halved this and mixed up the vegetables a bit by using a tin of stir fry veg so had baby corns instead of mangetout and only had chow mein noodles which were thicker and worked well. Very good for a cfilling veggie dish, didn't miss meat at all!
