Rustle up fast food that's far tastier and healthier than your local takeaway
Ditch: Takeaway king prawn with pineappleSwitch: Joint-protecting sweet and sour stir-fryNot only are prawns a lean source of protein, “they also provide the mineral selenium, which may help reduce joint inflammation”, says Scritchfield. The copper in cashews helps iron carry oxygen to muscles, she adds, and butter beans have fibre, protein and potassium – an electrolyte essential for organ and muscle function. Make it!Heat a tbsp of oil in a large pan. Cook two tsp of crushed garlic, one tsp of chilli flakes, a handful of frozen vegetables and a tbsp of butter beans for five minutes. Stir in two handfuls of frozen prawns and cook for three minutes. Add a handful of unsalted cashews, a small can of pineapple chunks, 240ml of jarred sweet and sour sauce, and heat. Serve over brown rice.Try this: Use tinned mango instead of pineapple; swap butter beans for edamame; use firm tofu or chicken instead of prawns.
I like food too. I find it hard to do without it, to be honest.
I don't like cheese much either.
I've been Vege since I was 10 yrs old - I'm 40 now
There have been some big changes over the years here in the UK Although it depends on where you go.
I don't get Chinese restaurants/take aways marking dishes with oyster sauce in as vege - Vegetarians do NOT eat meat or fish
Ive tried this meal. Very nice.
I did amend it slightly as not a big fan of rice so I added prawns/chicken & cashew nuts to veg stir fry. Ver tasky and does not bloat as would with rice. Lovely after a run.
