-Hey, people. ALL:
I'm Lily. This is Sapphire,
Frank and Elektra.
I've dragged in a few old friends from the Dumping Ground days...
-..to help me with a project I'm doing on healthy eating
at my catering college.
We've chosen our favourite recipes and shoved them into a hat
for another person to select at random and make the meal.
So, the person who suggested the recipe is going to stand
and criticise them heavily while they cook.
Although, I'm cooking today,
-so there'll be no criticising to be done.
-Hat, hat, hat.
-Hat, hat, hat, hat, hat, hat.
OK, so it's my turn to choose. I'm going to choose this one.
Sapphire's spectacular stir-fry.
-So, Saph, tell us about your recipe.
Well, pure and simple, it tastes great.
Fantastic textures, delicious and savoury,
and the colours in it remind me of my bedroom walls
in the Dumping Ground.
Very colourful. So, you better do it right, that's all I'm saying.
This will be the best stir-fry you've ever tasted.
-Go for it.
-So, we're going to go away and come back,
and make sure the food's all prepped so this doesn't become a show
-about chopping garlic.
-Although I'd watch that.
-What do you mean?
-It would be romantic.
Ta-dah. Right, here it is.
So, we have two tablespoons of sunflower oil,
four spring onions cut into 4cm lengths,
we have one crushed garlic clove,
1cm of fresh ginger - that's chopped and peeled.
-There's one carrot...
-What are you doing?
Yeah, are you trying to put everyone to sleep?
Right, excuse me, this is my project and that's how they talk
on all the cookery shows, so zip it.
You should be heating the oil.
-I was going to heat the oil.
-OK, cos it has to be hot.
But only cook it for a minute because,
if it all goes brown, I am not eating it.
How about all of you take a nice, big step back?
Wait till it's hot, though.
Now, the ginger, the spring onions
and the garlic goes in for one minute
because what will happen? It'll all go brown.
Um, is there an echo in here, or something?
It helps if the person you're cooking for
isn't a total whinge-bag.
-Right, it's nearly time to add the first veg.
-That oil should be hot enough now.
-Oh, thanks for that, Saph.
Having spent a year and a half in catering college,
I wouldn't have known(!)
-I would not have known.
-That should be...
-Stir it, then.
I'm just playing.
Do you know what? I was going to tell you how much I've missed you, but now I'm not so sure.
Oh, no, please don't get all emotional.
So, we're going to zip through it now and we're going to show you
just the cookery steps, so you can see how easy it is
with all the prep done. Jump-cut.
So, reduce the heat to medium...
..and then you add the carrots...
..the baby corn
and the peppers.
And after two minutes, they're done perfectly.
Now it's time for the courgettes and sugar snaps.
-Yeah, this is crazy healthy.
What can I say? My body's a temple.
OK, so you want to keep those colours vibrant,
toss the ingredients from the centre of the wok to the side.
-Just keep them moving.
-I've seen better.
Guys, like, I know what I'm doing.
-Then, after three minutes...
-You add your water, as so.
And then you add your two tablespoons of Hoisin sauce
and your two of low-salt soy sauce.
Same taste, just better for you.
And then, after you've done that,
you turn the heat back up for two minutes.
-You would serve this with rice or noodles,
which are found in microwavable packets everywhere.
And there you have it - a quick, easy, fun and fabulous
healthy meal. And even though you've done all the prep yourself,
it's made in under 30 minutes.
Let's try it.
Bit of rice.
-We'll make a cook of you yet.
Lily, you should've spent a little more time cooking in the house
and a little less time winding everyone up.
Where's the fun in that?
Anyway, see you next time for some more awesomeness in the kitchen.
-Yeah, ya know, this is awesome right now.
