Simple and delicious!

Yum, had some left over spinach which I added. Next time I might add some chilli. Really simple but tasty.

This was great! I had sort of low expectations because it seemed so simple, but MMMM!
Admittedly, I did add a chili pepper... I like a bit of kick. But for real, this was so good!

Made this last night with chicken and squash. Made my own spring rolls to go with it. Used plenty of crushed ginger and the flavour was awesome. I really didn't expect such nice flavours but thumbs up.

I added chicken as suggested-yummy and quick! Lovely colours.

I've been looking for something to compliment two different kinds of spicy shrimp I make often (one grilled, one stir-fried with a thicker sauce), and this is just the ticket. The man in the house also said he'd like this side with duck, so we'll try that next. Will definitely be making again to eat with seafood and poultry!

Butternut squash, cooked in 13 minutes?! I really doubt it! Still, I'll find out tonight...

Very easy, and very delicious- and my meat-loving other half loved it. I added a handful of Quorn pieces and substituted half a large sliced red pepper for the green beans.

This is a lovely vegeterian dish! Very easy to make.

this is a great veggie dish, i add the peanut butter without the chicken and if you want some protein go for lentils kids love it and always ask for more (as does my veggie mum in law)

I tried the chicken version and the left overs were even better the next day, but I did have to add a tsp of vegetable bouillon and a splash of water because most of the gravy had been used up. The recipe didn't say how big to make the chunks and I must have made mine too small (about 2 cms square) because they started to disintegrate. I used Whole Earth Peanut butter which has a subtle flavour, not too peanutty!

I did not expect to enjoy this as much as I did. It was really delicious. Will make again.

Nice flavourings, but it did need some protein, I think I would definitely make it again as the sauce was very nice but I would use more of a variety of vegetables and maybe some prawns.
