Aldi and Team GB challenged young people aged 5–14 to get creative and design an original recipe, inspired by Team GB. Megan, aged 12, was voted the winner in the 11-14 age category and the overall winner. Her recipe is a delicious steak and vegetable stir fry in an Asian Oyster & Spring Onion sauce served with Basmati rice. A quick and easy dish to prepare and cook - essential after a gruelling training session.

How is your recipe inspired by Team GB?
I have chosen ingredients which represent colours of the Olympic Rings: red - peppers, yellow - peppers, green - peppers, black and blue - sauce. This recipe is suitable for athletes of many Olympic sports, but I’ve focused on taekwondo as athletes on the GB team have inspired me on my own taekwondo journey. I’ve also chosen foods which start with the first letter of the five taekwondo tenets. Indomitable spirit - iceberg lettuce, perseverance - peppers, self-control - steak and courtesy - carrot.
