    Cook's tips

    Beansprouts become slimy when overcooked in a stir-fry so always add at the very end of cooking so they retain their crispness. To make this stir-fry more substantial, add protein-rich chopped peanuts and sesame seeds, thin strips of omelette or cubes of marinated tofu. Other vegetables, which would be perfect for this type of crunchy stir-fry, are baby corn, broccoli florets, courgette batons, green beans and mange tout.
