Variations

This variation uses frozen vegetables as they are more likely to be available in a busy kitchen, however, if you have fresh veg, such as red or green bell peppers, carrots, courgettes etc. then by all means use those. Far nicer than frozen if you have them.

You can use grated ginger root or bottled ginger instead of the julienned ginger. I just think that with matchsticks of ginger, you get a zesty tang when yo bite into the pieces.
