Mmm stir fry- with soya mince

When I went food shopping I was delighted to find that my favourite soya mince was on offer. I stocked up and now my freezer has 2 big bags of the stuff! I decided that for dinner tonight I had better use up some of it but fancied making something other than spaghetti bolognaise.

So I decided to make a stir fry! I used some different veggies that I had in, some soya mince (obviously) and loads of soy sauce and served it over some yummy udon noodles. It was nice as the mince which added a very different texture to the tofu I usually use for stir fries. The only negative was that the mince absorbed a lot of the soy sauce, which made it very flavourful but a little dry. I think next time I would use something like a black bean sauce, which I find is easily absorbed by the ingredients but also coats them nicely, making the dish more moist.

Mmm. That looks delicious! Stirfry's are a definite staple in the vegan diet. =)

I love udon noodles :o).

Oh, and I definitely ate more than my fair share's worth of chocolate-muffin batter before the muffins went into the oven. You gotta love that about vegan baking-- no eggs in the batter!
