I’ve looked at lots of sweet and sour recipes, and as I always like the easy route I couldn’t really find any that just seemed quick and easy to do, so I came up with this one. I wanted to avoid adding cornflour, but to still have a thick sauce, and I really wanted to have it packed with flavour but full of healthy ingredients. This is so so easy to make, and tastes great.
