We’ve been away camping with a bunch of friends for a few days, so I bought some of those handy little jars of Stuff – garlic, ginger, lemon grass, chili – all ready to be spooned into the wok. So useful, but I always feel guilty! But I brought most of the contents back, and they’ll be used up.
After eating barbecue and so forth for a few days, we just want simple food at the moment; last night was just rice and dhal – one of my favourite Desert Island Meals 🙂
Tonight , I dumped a teaspoon each of garlic and ginger into the wok, together with half a teaspoon of red chilli, in some hot groundnut oil. In went a red pepper and two big mushrooms, chopped. Cooked that off, added the juice of half a lemon and some sliced pak choi, and a splash of tamari went in at the end.
Simple and fresh and just exactly what we wanted.
