Stir-fried prawns for Chinese new year

I wanted to make some Chinese food to celebrate the New Year this weekend but just wanted a quick one-dish meal I could have for dinner when I was at home by myself. I adapted a Chinese recipe I found online to make this. I used prawns but it would probably work just as well with chicken and you can mix up the vegetables as well.

Mix 2 tsp sweet chilli sauce, 3 tsp soy sauce, 1 tsp artificial sweetener and 2 tbsp sunflower oil

Finely chop some vegetables - I used carrot, spring onion, red pepper and later added some broccoli as well

Spray some Fry-Light into a large frying pan or wok and stir fry the veg. You are supposed to add a chopped clove of garlic but I discovered I didn't have any so used garlic puree instead.

Add the prawns and cook through

Add beansprouts and the sauce

Stir-fry until vegetables are tender - how al dente you like them is up to you.
