Recipe Tips

Swap out the edamame, sweetcorn and red pepper with whatever leftover vegetables you have in the fridge. Just bear in mind that there is no cooking involved in this recipe, so you may want to pre-cook any vegetables you add (if needed) before you add them to the jar.

Change the tofu for tempeh, vegan ‘chicken’ or soy pieces for different flavour combinations.
