In January–February 2021, we challenged young people, aged 5–14, to get creative and design an original recipe, inspired by Team GB. This recipe, written by Megan, aged 12 from Theale Green School, Theale impressed the judges to be chosen as our winner for ages 11–14 and our overall competition winner!
A delicious steak and vegetable stir fry in an Asian Oyster and Spring Onion sauce served with basmati rice. A quick and easy dish to prepare and cook – essential after a gruelling training session.
Prep Time: 15 mins

“I have chosen ingredients which represent colours of the Olympic Rings: red, yellow and green peppers, and black and blue for the 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. Integrity and Indomitable Spirit (iceberg lettuce), Perseverance (peppers), Self Control (steak) and Courtesy (carrot).”
Congratulations to Megan and we hope you will enjoy trying her recipe and creating your own!
