First put the wok on the heat, then pour in the oil and
bring it up to a medium-high
temperature. Now add the onion
and cook, stirring only occasionally,
until it starts to brown – this takes
about 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the
5-spice powder or ginger and stir
it around quickly for about 30
seconds. Next tip in the vegetables and stir them around, keeping the heat quite high so the vegetables cook quickly and stay crunchy. Keep cooking and stirring for 4-5 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften.
vegetables are cooking, make a
2cm tear in the top of each rice
packet, then microwave each
packet separately for 2 minutes on
full power. If you don’t have a
microwave, put your rice on to cook
according to the packet instructions before you heat up the work.
Splash in 2 tbsp soy
sauce and remove from the heat.
Use more soy if you like but
remember that it’s salty. If you want
more sauce, splash in 1-2 tbsp
water. Tip the rice on to plates, add the veg and eat immediately.
