Use up the veg in your fridge with this easy sweet chilli vegetable rice bowl recipe. We've used mushrooms and broccoli, but sliced peppers, baby corn or a handful of spinach would all also work. The stir-fried veg is finished with a spicy sweet chilli glaze and topped off with a perfectly fried egg for a quick and healthy midweek meal, ready in under 30 mins. See method
