MAKING

5. Into a large saucepan of boiling salted water, plunge the lasagne squares and cook for 2 minutes until just tender. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

6. In a wok, heat a knob of butter and the oil and stir-fry the green beans and courgette for 1-2 minutes. Add a little of the reducing stock, the spring onions and carrot and continue to steam-fry for a further 1-2 minutes. Add the cayenne, soy sauce and lime juice. Remove from the heat.
