Ingredients:

P1050705

100 g Soy Protein Vegetarian Meat

1/2 Red Capsicum

3/4 Green Capsicum

Yakult 2bottles

1/3 Pineapple

7T Tomato Sauce

Tapioca powder/Potato powder

1/2 Fresh Lemon Juice

350ml Water

BBQ Sauce

Salt to taste

Method:

  1. Soak the soy protein vegetarian meat in water until softened. Squeeze the protein dry, then rinse it again, repeat this process for about 3 times. This is to get rid of the soy taste. If the vegetarian meat is too big in size, then dice it to size so that it can soak up the BBQ sauce and tomato sauce later.
  2. After rinsing, add in a generous amount of BBQ sauce and mix well. Leave it for about 40 mins for the protein to soak up the flavour.
  3. After this, stir fry until golden and aromatic.

  4. Cut the capsicums and pineapples into pieces slightly larger than the soy protein because they will shrink when cooked.
  5. Stir fry the capsicums for a bit then add in the tomato sauce.

  7. Stir a couple of times then add in the soy protein. Make sure not to stir for too long otherwise the tomato sauce will burn.

  10. Let it simmer for a while then adjust the flavour.
  11. If you prefer a sourer taste, then squeeze in some fresh lemon juice, if you prefer a sweeter taste then perhaps you will need more tomato sauce.
  12. After you have got the perfect taste, pour in the tapioca starch mixed with water, this thickens the sauce so the dish is not too runny with rice.
