This is one of my absolute favourite dinners to make on weeknights – so simple, so easy (it literally takes 10 minutes to cook and serve!) and so tasty. I’m obsessed with the tamari-mustard dressing I created for this too, it really completes the dish. You can use turkey or beef mince too, even some sautéd tofu would work in this recipe!
