Ingredients

For the peanut sauce

For the stir-fry

  • 2 tbsp peanut oil (sunflower oil will do too.)
  • 1 clove garlic (peeled and diced)
  • 1 piece ginger, fresh (thumb sized, peeled and grated)
  • 1 onion (peeled and diced)
  • 2-3 cups vegetables, fresh or frozen (choose your favourite: broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, etc.)
  • 1 big handful snow peas (or sugar snap peas)
  • 6-8 baby corns
  • 4.5 oz noodles (I love glass noodles as they’re really quick to cook and taste great!)
  • 1 handful peanuts

Optional

  • 1 stick lemongrass

Instructions

Preparation:

  • Get all ingredients ready and in one place. Thaw the frozen veggies (with a microwave or by taking them out of the freezer early enough).
  • Chopping time: chop the snow peas, baby corn and onion. Dice the garlic and ginger.
  • For the sauce: grab a large bowl and chuck in the peanut butter, soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce, water, syrup. Mix well with a spoon ‘til it’s a nice and creamy sauce. Optionally, throw in the lemon grass.
  • Cook the noodles so you have them at hand when the stir-fry comes together. When ready, drain and rinse under cold water (they’ll stick together less).

Now you’re ready to wok and roll:

  • In a wok or large pan heat the oil until it starts smoking.
  • Add the garlic, ginger, onion, sugar snaps and baby corn
  • Around 40 seconds later add the thawed veggies. (If you just use fresh veg, throw in everything at once).
  • Stir it well for about 4-5 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat a little and add the sauce and noodles. It’ll quickly begin to boil.
  • Make sure it’s all nice and creamy. Add a little more water, if not!
  • Add some peanuts
  • Let it simmer for another 3-5 minutes.
  • Fish out the lemon grass before serving (it’s only for the flavour, not for eating!!)
  • Done!
