About the recipe

main courses

This makes for a fast, easy and delicious supper. I love rustling this one up because it's a real comfort dish for me. The Chinese five-spice powder is the key to this recipe as it flavours the gravy. This is a real balanced meal of protein and vegetables, and the method of cooking used is a "saucy" stir-fry, which makes it really healthy too as the vegetables are still kept al dente retaining their nutrients. Serve it with generous helpings of plain steamed jasmine rice to soak up the yummy gravy.
