For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb đź‘Ť

I’ve made this one with Quorn chicken pieces, but you could use a different meat substitute, or just add in extra vegetables.

Serve these with our Vegetarian Sweet and Sour!

A great dish to serve alongside our Vegetarian Sweet and Sour is our Salt & Pepper Chips!

These really do taste as good as they look, and go really well with this and any of our Chinese fakeaway dishes!

How to make our Vegetarian Sweet and Sour

Step 1

Start by chopping the onions and peppers. Add to a frying pan laced with Low calorie cooking spray, along with the chicken (or whatever you’re using) and sweetcorn.

Fry until it looks…fried.

Step 2

Meanwhile, prepare the stock by adding to it the pineapple (optional), vinegar, sauces, Sukrin and tinned tomatoes.

Mix it up good, and add to the frying pan.

Step 3

Let the mixture boil down for a good 20 minutes or so, this will give it chance to thicken up a little and taste even better.

Step 4

That’s about it! Best served with rice, or just as good on it’s own. Enjoy!

What is Sukrin?

We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over onAmazon UK.

Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Vegetarian Sweet and Sour.

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.
