This was delicious. I added a little garlic and served with a chilli dip and it was demolished in minutes. I also served in baby gem lettuce leaves for easy to eat mouthfuls of food. Quick to make, fun to eat (a bit messy!) and really tasty. Low on the calories too!

My children absolutely love this recipe. One of my daughters is not a very adventurous eater, but repeatedly requests this meal which is so quick and easy to make and we enjoy it as well.

This is a great recipe for fitting more veggies and less meat into your diet. I'd never used frozen soya beans before so it was a great chance to try them- they're really easy to cook with (a bit like frozen peas) and add good texture. A nice recipe for a bit of a different weekday meal.
