Mouth-watering sweet and sour flavours! This high protein meal is a firm family favourite and puts a healthier spin on a popular takeaway.

Serves: 4
Prep: 10 mins
Cooking time: 15 mins


  • 7/8 cup (200g) basmati rice
  • 300g pork loin
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 4 spring onions
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp ginger syrup (or you can use minced/grated ginger)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 1/3 cup (200g) sugar snap peas
  • 1 ¼ cup (250g) cherry tomatoes
  • 1 ¼ cup (250g) pineapple, canned or fresh, drained

TIP: This dish is also very tasty with chicken breast or chicken thighs instead of pork.


Cook the rice according to instructions on the packaging.

In the meantime, cut the pork into slices. Finely chop the garlic and slice the spring onions diagonally.

Heat the oil in a wok on high heat, add the pork tenderloin, garlic, ginger syrup, lime juice and season with salt. Stir-fry 2 min, then lower the heat and add in the sugar snap peas. Stir-fry for another 4 minutes on low heat.

Next, add in tomatoes and pineapple and stir-fry for another 4 minutes, then take off the heat. Toss in the spring onions and mix.

Once rice is cooked divide everything onto 4 plates and serve.
