Spicy Sprout & Corgette Stir Fry

We had this for tea tonight with some rice noodles. It was a little insubstantial but would make a nice light meal (or I could just make more of it for hungry folk). Our sprouts were sadly a bit chemically despite a thorough wash (not all of them, some were very nice, but most of them :(), rubbish Sainsburys.

Serves 2, ~20 minutes.

250g (14oz) Brussels sprouts
1 courgette
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 dsp soy sauce
1 pinch chinese five spice
1 handful cashew nuts

Remove outer leaves of sprouts and halve. Slice courgette into strips and finely chop/crush the garlic. Gently fry garlic ~2 minutes until soft before adding five spice, nuts, sprouts and courgette strips. Fry vegetable mixture for several minutes over medium heat until sprouts slightly softened. Reduce heat, add chilli sauce and cook ~1 minute before adding soy. Serve.
I think this would work well with some bacon in it too.
