A vegetarian recipe that packs a punch. This intensely zingy stir-fry works as well at a dinner party as it does as a midweek supper.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 red chili, seeded and chopped
  • 1 level tsp fresh chopped ginger
  • 1 kilo purple sprouting broccoli, trimmed as for the pasta recipe
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • Juice of 1 lime and 1/2 its grated zest
  • 1 tsp runny honey

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a wok and when nice and hot throw in the garlic, chili and ginger. Fry, stirring, for about 30 seconds before adding the broccoli and the red onion. Stir and fry for another 30 seconds before adding the lime juice and zest. A minute or so later add the soy sauce and the honey.

  1. This stir-fry is fantastic with sea-food – a few scallops or prawns or a couple of squids, cut into rings. Alternatively, pop it on a plate next to a whole grilled, mackerel for a very virtuous supper.
