  • Chunk fresh root ginger, grated
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 4 ripe medium tomatoes, cored and sliced into quarters
  • 1 green pepper, deseeded and finely chopped

  1. Heat a wok over a high heat until it starts to smoke, then add the oil. Add the ginger and spring onions and stir-fry for a few seconds to release the flavours. Add the tomatoes, pepper and cabbage and toss for 3 min, until the cabbage starts to wilt and the pepper is tender.
  2. Add the rice wine or sherry and the stock. Stir in the soy sauce and vinegar, then stir in the blended cornflour. Simmer for a min or so to thicken the sauce, then serve.
