Slimming World recipe: Chinese banquet rice


  • 5 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 30g root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • ½ heaped tsp Chinese five-spice powder* (see tip)
  • 4 tbsp light soy sauce/ tamari
  • 400g lean pork loin, visible fat removed, diced, or 400g skinless and boneless chicken breast, diced
  • 300g dried long-grain rice
  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 200g broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into batons
  • 100g green cabbage, shredded
  • 225g can sliced bamboo shoots, drained
  • 225g can sliced water chestnuts, drained


  1. Mix one-third of the garlic and ginger with the five-spice powder and 2 tbsp soy sauce in a shallow dish. Add the pork/chicken, toss well and marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the pack instructions and drain. While the rice is cooking, spray a non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the eggs and cook until just set, then turn onto a board and roughly chop.
  3. Spray a large non-stick wok with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Fry the pork/chicken for 5 minutes, then transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  4. Add the remaining garlic and ginger to the wok along with the crumbled stock cube, broccoli, carrot and a good splash of water. Stir-fry for 3 minutes.
  5. Add the cabbage, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, rice and pork/chicken and stir-fry for 2 minutes, adding water if needed. Mix in the omelette and remaining soy sauce and serve hot.
