  • Stir-frying is one of the quickest ways to cook a meal, and this one is packed with healthy vegetables, too. Cooking the vegetables quickly makes sure that they keep all of their nutrients and vitamins, so it’s a great way to pack in a healthy mid-week dinner when you’re in a hurry. Try adding chicken, prawns, shredded beef or any of your favourite ingredients – it’s also good with tofu. You can add water chestnuts, mushrooms, baby corn, sugar snap peas or any other vegetables you like, too. Drizzle in a light soy sauce and it’s ready to be enjoyed.
