Cabbage and Peas Stir Fry is a healthy and perfect addition to any meal. These kinds of recipes are always my favourites because they are so versatile. This recipe is a great option for weeknights because it's quick to make. Addition of fresh peas with cabbage, black pepper & some fresh coriander makes it super tasty. It is a quick and healthy dinner solution the whole family will love!
