Speedy Dinners: Simple Stir Fry

Revision season is in full swing. I’m a simple cook anyway, but over exams I like my food to be even speedier so that I can spend as much time as I can studying.

 Over the next few weeks I’m going to be sharing some speedy and healthy dishes which you can cook in a flash- starting with a simple stir fry.

Fran’s Simple Green Stir Fry with a Lime sauce 

Serves 1, takes approx. 5 minutes to cook

For the stir fry:

  • Asparagus
  • Tofu (you could use chicken or whatever meat you like, but seriously Cauldron’s Marinated Tofu is the bomb).
  • Rice noodles (about half a bag)
  • Bean Sprouts (about half a bag)
  • Mange tout
  • Coconut oil for fryin’

For the sauce:

  • Soy sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Make your sauce by mixing together the juice of one lime and about the same quantity of soy sauce, season to taste.
  2. Heat your coconut oil in a frying pan or wok- whatever you have that is non-stick.
  3. Add the asparagus first, and fry for about 2 minutes or so to tenderise.
  4. Add the sauce, tofu, mange tout, bean sprouts and rice noodles, and cook for 2/3 minutes.
  5. Enjoy!

Please note I am wearing a fleece.

The beauty of a stir fry is you can chuck any vegetables you like in, I thought these ones I’ve featured worked really well together!

I now have 2 weeks off before my first exam, so it’s going to be a very fun fortnight! Hope revision/life is going well, Fran xx
