Whenever I order Chinese Takeaway, I almost always have Special Fried Rice. I love all the tasty little morsels of meat that they probably just couldn’t sell in dishes of their own…. so I was a little nervous to try this vegetarian version. I mean…. what would be the point? Well it turns out, the point is just wow. Nothing else. Just wow!
The mushrooms add a little bit of a meaty texture to this fat club recipe, from Slimming World‘s Veggie Deluxe book. Suspend your disbelief, and give it a whirl!
I’m not gonna lie… this recipe is fantastic! It’s from Slimming World’s A Taste of Asia book, and I’ve been meaning to try it for ages but never quite got round to it. Well more fool me!
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not exactly the same as Lemon Chicken from the takeaway, but it’s still amazing. I made it on a day that I was frustrated that my weight loss was slowing… it was meant to be cheat day, but I was so wound up at not losing any weight that week that I decided just to cook instead… and I was glad I did, as this was honestly better than any of the unhealthy options I had available on that night.
I can neither confirm or deny that I made it again three days later….
However, enough about me….. stop reading and get cooking!
