Looking for a new recipe to add to your repertoire? We hear ya which is why I’m loving this simple but delicious bowl of goodness. Who needs a Chinese takeaway when you can rustle up a healthier veggie version in minutes.

Local celebrity chef Kwoklyn Wan has just released his latest cookery book, The Veggie Chinese Takeaway Cookbook and of course Muddy is all over it – literally.

This dish took my fancy – a mountain of yummy vegetables in a rich, aromatic, umami sweet chilli sauce, served over rice (or you can dish it up with noodles). Yum. See you in the kitchen!

Ingredients:

1 tbsp oil
1 onion, roughly diced
1 tsp grated garlic
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 red (bell) pepper, roughly diced
1 courgette (zucchini), cut into
bite-sized pieces
60g (2oz) long-stem broccoli cut into small florets
6–8 baby corn cobs
1 medium aubergine (eggplant) cut into bite-sized pieces

For the sauce

125ml (½ cup) light soy sauce
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp dried chilli flakes
1 tbsp honey (vegan option: use agave or maple syrup)

Method:

1. Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a bowl, mix well and set to one side.

2. Heat the oil in a wok over a medium-high heat, add the onion, garlic and ginger and fry until fragrant and the onion is translucent.

3. Add the remaining vegetables and stir-fry for 3–4 minutes.

4. Add the sauce mixture, bring to the boil and simmer for 3 minutes.

5. Serve on top of freshly steamed rice or noodles.
