If you’re after a nice healthy meal that can be cooked in minutes then this San Choy Bau is just for you.  It’s a great meal to make for a dinner party as it’s cheap and you can make the mince and salad ingredients ahead of time.

Normally San Choy Bau recipes contain oyster sauce, however living an additive-free lifestyle we don’t own or use it as we can’t find a preservative free one or one that doesn’t contain food colour caramel.  We really need to create an oyster sauce recipe, don’t we?…
