Trisha Lewis’ Thai Style King Prawn Oriental Stir Fry

Plus Aldi’s Chinese Pork Lettuce Wraps

If you love a takeaway but have resolved to try and eat that bit healthier this January, Aldi has the perfect recipes for you to try at home to help you feel like you’re not missing out!

Aldi Ambassador and Chef Trisha Lewis has some tips to show you how easy – and how much healthier – it is to make your own fakeaway at home in minutes.

Trisha commented: “Before starting my journey, takeaways became the norm once a week, so I had to find a way to keep this Saturday evening ritual but with more benefits for a healthier lifestyle. Enter, the fakeaway! This delicious prawn and noodle stir-fry from Aldi is a dish that is packed with flavour, colour and nutrients. It is also simple, fast, easy and cost effective to make and can be pre-made so it will be even quicker to cook on your night off! Plus, I always make enough sauce to last 2 weekends, so it can be stored in the fridge in a jar or a tub. If you make this be sure to tag me and let me know how you got on!”
