Thinly slice the red onion (see ingredients list). In a small bowl, combine the rice wine vinegar, water and a good pinch of sugar and salt. Scrunch the red onion in your hands, then add to the pickling liquid and stir to coat. Set aside until serving. Grate the carrot (unpeeled). Roughly chop the coriander. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Finely grate the ginger. Thinly slice the cucumber into batons. Slice the lemon in half. TIP: You can thinly slice the cucumber into half-moons if you’d prefer.


In a medium bowl, combine the carrot, coriander, shredded cabbage mix and black sesame seeds. Add a good squeeze of lemon juice (reserve one lemon for lunch) and season to taste. Toss to coat and set aside.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. Add the pork mince and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until just browned, 4-5 minutes.


Add the garlic and ginger to the pork and cook, tossing, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the Thai seven spice blend (see ingredients list) and soy sauce, then stir through. Cook until well combined, 1-2 minutes. Reserve 2 small tubs of sweet chilli sauce for lunch, and add the remaining sweet chilli sauce to the pork. Stir to combine. Set aside two portions of the pork for your lunch.


Heat the mini flour tortillas in a sandwich press, or on a plate in the microwave for 10 second bursts, until warmed through. Drain the pickled onion and take everything to the table to serve. Build your tacos by spreading a layer of the coconut sweet chilli mayonnaise over a tortilla. Top with the slaw, cucumber, Thai spiced pork mince and pickled onion.


When you're ready to pack lunch, drain the sweetcorn. Trim the snow peas and thinly slice lengthways. Slice the reserved lemon into wedges. In a medium bowl, combine the sweetcorn, snow peas, crispy shallots and microwavable basmati rice. Divide between two microwave-safe containers. Divide the lemon and the reserved sweet chilli sauce between containers. Top with the reserved Thai-spiced pork. Refrigerate. At lunch time, remove the lemon and sweet chilli sauce. Microwave the Thai spiced pork bowl until piping hot, 2-3 minutes. Stir through the sweet chilli sauce and add lemon juice to taste.
