San Choy... take a Bau!...

I pulled out this book yesterday and decided we would have San Choy Bau - we all like it in this house so that is a plus! There are so many good recipes in this book, I will be doing more during the week.
Prepare all the vegetables - you could add more if you want (eg. corn kernels, zucchini, beans, peas) ...
Cook it all off in the wok...
Add the sauces and admire the aroma!
Serve in lettuce cups or flour tortillas.

San Choy Bau

1 tspn peanut oil
1 small onion, chopped
100gms button mushrooms, sliced
1 carrot, grated or finely chopped (I added this in)
2 tspn minced ginger (I forgot to buy it so I sprinkled powdered ginger)
2 garlic cloves, crushed
300gms lean chicken mince (I used 500gms)
6 spring onions, finely chopped
2 tbspn Maggi Oyster Sauce
2 tbspn soy sauce
2 tbspn fresh lime juice
1.5 cups fresh coriander leaves (crap - totally forgot to get some! - so I used dried)
iceberg lettuce leaves for cups or warm tortillas
1. Heat oil in a wok at medium-high heat.
2. Add the onion, mushrooms, ginger and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes.
3. Add the chicken mince and cook in wok for 3 minutes or until cooked through, breaking up lumps.
4. Add half the spring onions plus the oyster sauce, soy sauce and lime juice, cook off for 2 minutes.
5. Remove from heat, spoon mixture into lettuce cups and top with coriander and remaining spring onions. Wrap up and chomp!
I hope you enjoy this one, it's very easy and low fat to boot!
Cheers - Joolz
