    I'm just about to do an online shop and I'm looking for some inspiration. I love stir fry's but I really want some ideas to jazz them up a bit.

    Afraid I've got no ideas for you, but any ideas that people can come up with would be much appreciated :)

    Other than chucking some soy sauce in, I'm stumped! lol. I;ve tried adding spices before, but they always end up that grainy way, if you know what I mean.

    I don't really want to syn ridiculously on some of the sauces you can get. Need some jazzy ideas?? :D

    boil wholewheat noodles in chicken stock, drain and save some of the stock water. In a separate pan, fry up some chicken, mushrooms, spring onion, mange tout, baby corn, grated ginger root and add a little of the noodle water and simmer til it becomes almost dry and sticky.

    Put noodles in a frying pan or wok and fry them up with frylight, adding a little beaten egg so that the egg sticks to the noodles in little clumps.

    Mix your sticky veg and chicken mix with the noodles.

    Et voila. Ginger chicken and spring onion noodle stir fry.

    After I've stir-fried my veg (with a little soy sauce), before I dish it out I stir through some sweet chilli sauce (1 tbsp = 1 1/2 syns). About 2 tbsps does a pan full of stir-fry.

    I like the Blue Dragon sachets - they might seem high in syns but divided for 2 people it's not as bad!

    I usually use chicken stock and soy sauce, really does add to the flavour.

    It's a bit late as you've already shopped but I absolutely love the flavours in the recipe from last months mag. Think it's chicken chow mein, I do it on a green day with masses of noodles and quorn rather than chicken and add more veg. In fact it's not really the recipe I follow, just the spices and sauces. Really tasty though!
