4
In the same pan, fry the minced pork on medium heat in the remaining oil.

7
Peel the cucumber and cut into fine strips. Cut the remaining spring onion into strips.
8
Put the chicken stock granules, hot water and soya milk in a pan and bring to just before the boil. Pour this into the pork mixture at Step 5.
9
Divide equally into serving dishes in this order: quinoa, Step 7, then the pork sauce from Step 5. The chilli oil at Step 6 is optional.

Tips & Note

●Mix the ingredients at Step 5 in that order to blend well.
