Chicken Shitake Stir Fry with Tofu Noodles

 

DSCN1509

It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s gluten-free. And if you want it to be vegan, just omit the chicken. This is a wonderful one dish meal that tastes fabulous without being actually identifiable with any particular cuisine. It suggests Asian, but doesn’t demand that you agree. It also suggests something clean and bright and spicy. And is also quite satisfying! ~ Glyn
