  • 300g pack stir-fry vegetable with peppers and mangetout (we used Sainsbury's read-to-use baby leaf stir-fry)
  • handful basil leaves
  • 25g roasted peanuts, roughly chopped


  1. Mix the peanut butter, chilli sauce, 100ml water and soy sauce to make a smooth satay sauce. Put the noodles in a bowl and pour boiling water over them. Stir gently to separate, then drain thoroughly.

  2. Heat the oil in a wok, then stir-fry the ginger and harder pieces of veg from the stir-fry mix, such as peppers, for 2 mins. Add the noodles and rest of the veg, then stir-fry over a high heat for 1-2 mins until the veg are just cooked.

  3. Push the veg to one side of the pan, then pour the peanut sauce into the other side, tilting the pan. Bring to the boil. Mix the sauce with the stir-fry, then sprinkle over the basil leaves and peanuts to serve.

I made it without the ginger as i didn't have any in the house but it still tasted good, i will try again with the ginger and hopefully it will be even better :-)

Great quick dish. Especially when made with home grown mangetout!

I love this!! So easy, and so quick to make it's fine even when I'm shattered from work. Will try it with chicken next.

Very yummy! I used whole earth peanut butter which is less sweet than something like sunpat so maybe that helped. Very impressed with the satay sauce - a great store cupboard back up and took only a few minutes to make.

This was truly delicious! I've had this 2 times now. The first time I had it with diced turkey because I was wary of how a 100% veggie dish could be filling. It was good, but there was far too much food! The second time I kept to the recipe and it was just right so I'll go with that in the future. One small point is that I cooked dry egg noodles instead of using fresh noodles and I don't think it really made a difference - it was still yummy!

I really didn't enjoy this, too much peanut butter - just tasted wrong in my opinion. My boyfriend keeps referring to it as the "sunpat stirfry"!

I was a little sceptical when I had a bowl full of mashed up crunchy peanut butter and other stuff sauce, it looked a bit wrong (like curdled milk with lumps in it). But I should have had faith - once it's mixed in with everything it really is fantastic!

Just eaten this and it really was yummy! Made half the amount just for me. Was going to eat the rest tomorrow but I can't stop picking at it. It's delicious cold too!
