Combine in a small bowl the Kakadu Plum Sweet Chilli Sauce, soy sauce and vinegar.
In a wok or a deep heavy pan, heat the oil until very hot.
Add the ginger, garlic and chilli flakes and cook for 20-30 seconds – but don’t let them burn.
Add the denser vegetables first (cauliflower, broccoli and mushrooms) and let them cook and toss for about 2 minutes.
Add next the leeks, zucchini, snow peas, squash and toss for about 30 seconds, before adding the water chestnuts, baby bok choy, bamboo shoots and the mountain pepper and saltbush..
Toss in the wok/pan for a further 30 seconds.
Stir in the sauce and mix through the vegetables. Add half the chopped coriander. Cover and cook until the vegetables are just tender but still crunchy – about another minute.
Serve at once and sprinkle Lemon Myrtle Chilli Coconut Nut Free Dukkah generously over each dish.
