You can keep leftovers in the fridge for a day, but it tastes best if you eat it right away.

  4. Chop 300 ml / 1 1/4 cup red cabbage, 1 red pepper, 1 leek and 180 g / 6 oz water chestnuts.
  5. Add the cabbage, pepper, water chestnut, leek, 140 g / 5 oz sweet corn and 125 g / 4 oz soy beans and fry them soft. Add the sauce and fry for another 5 minutes.
  6. Take a few moments for a relaxing exercise. Sit on a chair and focus on your breathing. Close your eyes and focus on your breath. Listen to the breath. How does your breathing sound? How does it feel? Are you breathing into your stomach or in your chest? Sit and observe your breathing for a few minutes.
  7. Serve the stirfry with bulgur if you like.
