You will need:
1 large carrot – slices top to tail
1 yellow pepper
8 leaves (with stems attached) pak choi
60g red spring onions
50g tenderstem broccoli
handful of shredded red cabbage
5-10 mange tout
1 tablespoon smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce light
1 tablespoon boiling water
1 tablespoon made up stock (vegetable)
1/2 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice
1 teaspoon honey
2 tablespoons oil
How to make:
Prepare all of your vegetables before you heat the pan and keep an eye on them to make sure the vegetables don’t burn.
Mix the peanut butter, soy sauce, water, honey, 5 spice and stock together in your bowl, making sure they have fully combined.
Next I popped the chickpeas into our preheated built in electric single oven at gas mark 7 (220 degrees) for 30 minutes, having coated them in 1 tablespoon of oil.
Then heat a wok or frying pan with the rest of the oil to a high temperature. Once the pan is extremely hot, add in all of the vegetables, except for the pak choi.
Cook these in the pan for a few minutes, making sure you keep stirring and that all of the vegetables are covered in the hot oil. Now you can add in the pak choi and cook for a further 2-4 minutes until the leaves just start to wilt.
Clear a space in the pan and pour in half of the sauce mixture. Let the sauce sizzle and steam through the vegetables before stirring it in. Add in the rest of the sauce and let it cook for a few more minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on it.
Now are you ready to drain and serve your meal. Remove the chickpeas from the oven as a side accompaniment to your vegetable dish.
To make your meal more filling (and not suitable for vegetarians), you have the option to add chicken or prawns into the stir fry.
