The Chinese New Year of the Monkey has begun….  And I’m a Monkey.  So I’m hoping it will be a good year, not just for me, but for everyone.

This delicious stir-fry can be prepared and ready-to-eat in 3o minutes or so….

…..I thought I’d go easy on myself…so I bought a jar of yellow bean paste (one of the few which is vegan) from my local Asian shop, and pre-cooked medium soft chinese wheat noodles ( also vegan).

I have frozen cooked beans in the freezer …but tinned beans will do just fine.

Here’s how it goes (blink and it’s over) 🙂
