Woman's Weekly recipe Nasi goreng is a meat-free curry that's full of big flavours from a mix of garlic and ginger, soy sauce, fish sauce and red chillies. It's super speedy to make and will be on the table in 15 mins flat, making it the perfect weeknight dinner for two - or a quick replacement for a Friday night takeaway that's quicker, cheaper and better for you.

  • 2tsp soy sauce
  • ½tsp fish sauce
  • 2 pak choi
  • 4 spring onions
  • large handful of coriander
