Healthy Prawn & Vegetable Stir-fry with garlic, ginger & chilli

Let me set the backdrop for this dish: It was a cold, rainy ‘winter’ night in Australia. I was at home for the evening and had a pantry full of vegetables that I felt obligated to eat (they were close to going off).  I felt a head cold coming on, so I was feeling particularly sooky and was craving something warm & hearty without breaking the diet.  I decided to create a dish pumped with garlic, ginger and veggies.  Enter this delicious prawn & veggie stir fry .  I marinated the prawns in garlic, ginger, chilli & lime and they turned out delightful!  On top of the prawns & vegetables, I added some ‘Slim Noodles’ to make it feel a bit naughty. (Want to know more about slim noodles – check out my quick review of them here.)
