One serving contains three optimal daily servings of vegetables. This light, yet delicious meal has 250 kcal per serving.


  • 250g of pork ribs (removed all visible fat), cut into pieces
  • 1 teaspoon of cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce
  • low-calorie frying spray
  • 150g of mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 red peppers, peeled and cut into slices
  • 75g of mangetout peas (crispy pea) trimmed
  • 15g of fresh ginger root, cut into thin sticks
  • 1 clove of garlic, thinly sliced
  • 4 spring onions, cut into shorter pieces
  • freshly ground black pepper


Season the pork with pepper. Mix the cornflour with two tablespoons of cold water until smooth, then stir in the soy sauce. Spray a large wok or deep frying pan with baking soda and put on high heat. Fry the pork, stirring, for 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned, but not overcooked.

Transfer to a plate. Return the pan to the heat, reduce the heat a little and sprinkle with more oil. Fry mushrooms and pepper for 2 minutes. Add the mangetout peas and fry for a minute. Add ginger, garlic, and spring onions and fry for a few seconds. Return the pork to the pan, then pour the soy sauce mixture over the meat and vegetables. Fry for 1-2 minutes, or until the sauce thickens and the pork is fried. Serve immediately.
