    • 750 g (1 lb 10 oz) courgettes, thinly sliced
    • 1 red pepper, diced

    1. Prepare all the vegetables and divide each into two equal piles: you will need to stir-fry in two batches so as not to overcrowd the wok.
    2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok until it starts to smoke slightly. Starting with the first half, add the onions and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the garlic, stir once, then add the courgettes, red pepper and sweetcorn. Season with salt and pepper and continue to stir-fry for about 5 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked but still crisp and bright.
    3. Sprinkle with half of the lemon or lime juice and stir. Transfer the stir-fry to a bowl and keep it warm. Cook the remaining vegetables the same way.
