Stir Fried Spring Veg w/ Chilli Ginger Chia Jam + Soba | Veggie num num

This is a recipe that’s been sitting in the back of my head and on my to do list for ages! With a trip to the local markets over the weekend I was spurred into action and armed with a basket of crunchy and colourful goodies, I knew it was time to throw it together.

It’s basically a super simple stir-fry recipe that’s made a little more awesome by the addition of a homemade chilli, ginger chia jam. I used chia seeds to make a jam with far less sugar than your typical store brought sweet chilli sauce and I’m so happy with how it all came together! I could seriously eat bowl after bowl of this healthy, invigorating stir-fry.

Packed with a rainbow of vegetables and lots of fresh ginger this simple stir-fry is a truly nourishing dinner. Use your favourite in season veg and if you like your chili sauce hot, add a few bird’s-eye chillies to give it an extra kick. I served this healthy vegetarian recipe with soba noodles because basically, I love any excuse to eat soba. You could serve it with brown rice, ramen noodles or really any rice or noodle variety you prefer.

The Chilli, Ginger Chia Jam should keep well in a jar in your fridge for a few weeks or more. The recipe makes enough for three or four stir-fries or try serving it as you would sweet chilli sauce in any of your favourite dishes.
