Stir-fries, especially colourful ones, are a great way to get a bunch of vitamins and minerals into a child’s diet (as well as your own). Use whatever veggies you have in the fridge to create this meal.

Serves 4


1 onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp sesame oil

2 cups frozen prawns

1 cup snow peas

2 carrots, chopped

1/2 red capsicum, cut lengthways

1/2 yellow capsicum, cut lengthways

1 bunch broccolini

1 tbsp fish sauce

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 lemon or lime, juiced

2 parcels egg noodles

Chilli (optional – for the adults)


  1. Pan-fry onion and garlic with sesame oil. Add prawns and rethermalise (do not reduce the water from the frozen prawns).
  2. Add veggies, fish sauce, soy sauce and lemon juice.
  3. While veggies are cooking, cook egg noodles as per directions on the pack.
  4. When they are cooked, rinse in cold water. Add noodles to veggies and toss through.
