Simple San Choy Bow

This has to be one of my favourite quick and healthy recipes at the moment.

San Choy Bow
  • Served in crispy fresh lettuce cups, this recipe is perfect for those warm summer days. 
  • It can be served as a meal on it’s own, or as an entree… if you can resist eating them all that is. 
  • If you have 10 minutes and one pan, you can whip up this recipe. 
  • This recipe has been beefed up with some extra vegetables. That way you’ll be that little bit closer to getting you’re daily 5-6 recommended servings. 
  • You can place left overs in the fridge for the following day. Simply remember to keep the lettuce cups separate from the mince.
