Meatless Monday: Quorn Vegetable Noodles in a Satay Sauce

Happy Meatless Monday!

Today's recipe is a mix of a few things we decided to try. It was so simple to make, and made a really tasty and filling dinner.

When we decided to try our hand at making the noodles, I started browsing for Vegetarian Satay Noodle recipes online, but none of them really had what I wanted (I had a lovely Chicken Satay meal the other week when we went out for dinner and I think in some way I wanted to try and recreate that meal - it really was divine). So I started looking for Chicken Satay noodle recipes and thought if I could find one I really liked, I could substitute out the chicken and work from there. 

I found a great recipe which I could adapt but the recipe called for a packet of Satay sauce, and we like to know what is in our food, so I started hunting again until I found a nice easy Satay recipe to try. 

Today's Meatless Monday will be in two parts, I will start with the recipe for the noodle dish, and then go on to making the sauce.
