  • 6 cups mixed vegetables, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 spring onions, sliced into 4 cm lengths
  • 1 fresh chilli, finely sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 small bunch coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (salt-reduced)
  • 3 tbsp vegetable stock (salt-reduced)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 500g raw prawns, peeled and deveined, tail intact
  • 12 cashew nuts, roughly chopped
  • 1⅓ cup cooked brown rice


1. Place the raw vegetables in a large mixing bowl. Add the spring onions, chilli, garlic, ginger and coriander and toss to combine, as you would a salad. Drizzle oyster sauce and soy sauce over the vegetables.

2. Heat a large wok over a medium to high heat. Add half of the vegetable stock with the olive oil. When steaming, add the prawns and cook for 2 minutes.

3. Add the vegetables and stir-fry quickly for 3-4 minutes, or until the prawns are pink. Add more stock if needed. Sprinkle with cashews and serve with brown rice.
