Easy Recipes for One or Two

Recipe of the Month

新年快乐 - Xin Nian Kuai Le

Happy Chinese New Year!  

2019 is the Year of the Pig.  Pigs are diligent, compassionate, and generous. They have great concentration: once they set a goal, they will devote all their energy to achieving it. 

This month we have chosen a stir-fry, which has its roots in Chinese cuisine and is now a firm kiwi favourite.  Why don't you double the recipe and invite friends around to celebrate Chinese New Year.
