Fiery Dressing

  • 1 cherry bomb or standard red chilli – deseeded and finely chopped
  • 20g of coriander – roughly chopped
  • 5 tablespoons of Japanese rice vinegar

  • Make the fiery dressing by mixing the chilli, coriander, rice vinegar and honey in a small jug.

  • Heat 1 tablespoons of the oil in the large frying and fry the cheese for 30 seconds on each side until lightly coloured.
  • Remove from the pan and keep warm.
  • Add the chicory and onions and fry quickly over a high heat, stirring for 1 – 2 minutes until beginning to colour. Spoon onto some kitchen roll and keep warm.
