Nutty Vegetarian Stir Fry: Student Friendly Recipes

As promised, I have another student friendly recipe to share with you today. This recipe is vegetarian but if you do eat meat and want a version with meat, you can easily substitute the quorn for chicken or leave both out and just go for a vegetable stir fry. Stir fries seem to be a great meal option for students as they're affordable and pretty quick to cook. Furthermore, there are several different options for sauces but this has been my favourite recipe so far so I thought it might be nice to share this with you.


Quorn chicken pieces
Egg noodles
Broccoli- fresh or frozen
Peanut Butter
Soy Sauce

1. Place some oil in a large frying pan or wok and cook the quorn pieces through.
2. Whilst the quorn is cooking, boil the noodles in a saucepan and either microwave the broccoli if frozen, or boil in a saucepan- separate or the same pan as the noodles... it's all going in the same dish at the end!
3. Add some soy sauce in the saucepan- as little or as much as you like.
4. Add a tablespoon of peanut butter and mix around the pan with the soy sauce, so that it's evenly spread and will coat the food nicely.
5. Slice some mushrooms and place them in the frying pan.
6. Cut carrot slices with a vegetable peeler and place in the frying pan.
7. Chop half a chilli into small pieces and place in the pan- add more, less or none at all depending on how spicy you want your stir fry to be.
8. Add the noodles and broccoli to the pan and mix together.
9. Make sure there's enough peanut butter and soy sauce to cover the ingredients and if needed, add a few more splashes of soy sauce and/or peanut butter until you reach the desired amount.
10. Once cooked through, serve up the stir fry and enjoy!

This is such a good recipe as other than the fresh ingredients, which can be substituted for preferred items or things already in the flat, a lot of students won't need to go out and buy anything specifically for the meal. If you give this recipe a go, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did- you'll have to let me know how it goes. Thank you for reading this post, if you liked it and want to see more from me, you can follow my social media links in the top right hand corner to see when I next upload.
