These Thai vegetables are far from a simple side dish. Packed with authentic Thai flavours, this dish is perfect for getting in some more of your five-a-day. This recipe uses cabbage, baby corn, mange tout and more, but you can use whichever vegetables you have in the fridge. All you need to bring these to life is our fragrant Thai 7 Spice seasoning, which blends chilli, ground coriander, ginger, cumin, cinnamon, star anise and cayenne pepper together. Once the braised vegetables are cooked but still crunchy, add a simple mixture of soy sauce, corn flour and sugar to create an aromatic silky smooth sauce. Serve with rice or noodles.
