2.Add the prawns and cook for 5 minutes until pink and plump, then remove from the wok and set aside.
3.Add the second measure of oil and the rice and fry for 5 minutes until toasted and colouring, then add the kale and peas and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until wilted and bright green.
4.Return the prawns to the wok and toss together. Season with soy sauce and a squeeze of lime. Garnish with cashews.

I used a wild rice blend for this quick and delicious dinner but you could easily use brown or white instead. Traditionally you would just keep frying everything as you go, but I like to take the prawns out for a minute while I fry the rice so they don’t overcook and go rubbery. Sometimes I add a simple egg omelette shredded on top. – Jo Wilcox
