GET CREATIVE COOKING TIPS

  • Recipes are essentially a "how-to guide". However, this doesn't mean you can't make some minor changes to create a 'master dish'. For example, with this recipe, you can remove the chicken and add more veggies such as broccoli, carrots or celery.
  • It's important to remember not all veggies cook at the same rate. So, if you're going to get adventurous and you're not sure how long each veggie will take, cook them in the wok individually and add them to a "veggie bowl" you will toss into the mix before stirring in the sauce.
  • If you're vegan, you can opt to remove the chicken stock and add vegan-friendly vegetable stock instead.
  • Cooking to taste simply requires an opinion. If you've regularly eaten Asian meals and you know you like cashews or mixed nuts, add them in. The best time to add nuts is in the last few minutes of cooking.
