Vegan Mofo Day 2: stir fry with rice noodles, cashews and sweet chili sauce

I made this Thai sweet chili sauce the other day to use it as a dip for my vegan cheesy bites. But then Sean wanted to go out for Chinese food. As I was not in mood to go out I said I was going to make Chinese at home. So, I used the sweet chili sauce for this stir fry with rice noodles, veggies and cashews and it was super delicious so I had to share!

Juice of 1 lime

Add the vegetables and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the cashews, ginger and garlic and stir-fry for 1 more minute. In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, Thai sweet chili sauce, lime juice, agave nectar and sesame oil. Toss the noodles with the sauce and vegetables and serve.
