Spicy Stir Fried Vegetables with Seaweed Sauce

Created by SteveA

A healthy, but really tasty stir fry of mixed vegetables in a spicy seaweed sauce. Great with noodles or rice. I use the pre-made bought vegetables, but you can use your own of course. The seaweed gives a lovely salty flavour of the sea, like a seafood stock.
