220g Chinese rice rolls

40g green beans

10g carrot, in sticks

10g mushrooms, sliced

1 splash light soy sauce

1 pinch sugar

Sauce

18g Chinese basil leaves

8g Jinhua ham

      1. Prepare the basil paste

  3.  Stir-fry the rice rolls

  • Heat oil in a wok. Stir-fry the green beans, carrot sticks, mushrooms and scallions until they start to soften. Add the rice rolls and basil paste and mix well. Season with soy sauce and sugar.
