It’s been a lazy Sunday so far and I’ve been binge watching Mindhunter all day. Immersed in the show I had to prepare something quick, easy and delicious, and that’s just what this glass noodle stir-fry is. When preparing stir-fry I always think about balancing out the flavours to get the perfect combination that any of my family members or friends who come over for dinner would like. This recipe has the sweet notes, the spicy ones as much as the sour ones from the lemon and orange zest, and it is just the dish you need when you don’t want to prepare big dinners during the weekend.
Luckily I have a few more ideas when you’re stuck trying to think of what to whip up in half an hour or such:
