Wok can be very exciting, with a great load of taste. You can make a wok very easy by buying a bag of vegetables and just wok fast with some chicken or pork. OR, you can do like me, choose your own vegetables, peel, chop and make a heavenly wok with your favourite ingredients. 🙂
Serving size: 2 pers
Estimated time to prepare: 30 min
2 chicken fillets (150g each approx)
3 small carrots
1/2 white onion
1 red chili
100g asparagus beans
1 red bell pepper
2 cloves of garlic
1 tbs ginger (fresh)
1,5 dl Peanuts
Wash the chicken fillets in cold water and cut them into strips. Let them rest on the kitchen while you prepare the vegetables.
Peel and cut carrot and parsnip into strips. Wash and cut the bell pepper into strips as well (see this for tip), peel onion, and cut into cubes.
Remove the seeds from the chili pepper and finely chop. Finely chop the garlic cloves. Peel the ginger and grate. Wow, that smell is fantastic!! 🙂
Allright, you got the vegetables sorted, time to prepare that premium peanut butter!
In a food processor or blender, mash the peanuts into a fine powder. Add 1 tbs olive oil, chili pepper, garlic and ginger. Process this until it is a fine butter. Use lime juice to taste the butter. IMPORTANT: If you used salted peanuts, do not add salt at all. If you used natural peanuts, add some salt to suit your own taste.
With the butter done, and the vegetables chopped, you are ready to start some serious wokking! Heat olive oil in a frying pan on medium/high heat. Roast the chicken strips first, adding only half of them to start with. Get some nice color on them and let them rest on a plate. Roast the other half, and let them rest as well.
Make sure the pan is hot, and add some extra olive oil. Wok the parsnip and carrot first, they take longer to cook. After 2-3 minutes of tossing and flipping, add the onion and bell pepper. After a few minutes, put the chicken back in the pan and a few tablespoons of that lovely butter! Smells good? Add the asparagus beans at the end, and if you
want, you can a tablespoon of Soya Sauce and pepper, but be careful with the Soya if it’s salty!!
