Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the beef/Quorn.

Fry on a high heat and separate the strands of meat. Add chopped onion, garlic, chilli, soy sauce and seasoning. Stir and fry for 10-15 minutes until really brown and crispy.


Pop the cooked beef into a mixing bowl. Add the juice of half a lime. Stir well and allow to cool slightly.


Arrange a generous amount of salad leaves onto your serving plate.


Top with the warm, limey larb. Add fresh coriander leaves, chopped Spring onions and julienned carrot strips.


Finally, scatter with thinly sliced red onion and more lime juice. Season with garlic pepper and dried garlic flakes for a spectacular finish.

TIP


Try using your favourite seasonings, spices and salad ingredients. Ring the changes each time you make this dish depending what you have in the fridge. You could even add some finely diced mango to sweeten and freshen it up. Fresh mint would work really well too, especially in the Summer.
