San choy bow (vegetarian)

I have made this dish a couple of times now and am feeling it is ready to share with you, because I am really happy with the flavour! It is such a cracking little meal… light, healthy + a great share plate!

You can really add what veggies you like to the mince, I’ve used onion, carrot + kale in my recipe – but you could try mushrooms, cabbage, water chestnuts etc.

A perfect appetiser, or main meal.

serves 4 

ingredients

  • 1 1/4 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 + 1/2 tbsp organic tamari
  • 1 tsp chilli + garlic sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp rice bran oil
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic finely diced
  • 400g plant based mince
  • 1 carrot diced
  • 3 pieces of kale shredded
  • 1 drop ginger essential oil *foodgrade
  • 1 baby cos lettuce washed + leaves separated
  • 2 spring onions sliced
  • bean shoots
  • fresh chilli
  • lime wedges
  • sour cream (vegetarian) 

Make the sauce first. Combine the cornflour + water in a small bowl to make a smooth paste. Add the tamari, chilli + garlic sauce, sesame oil + rice wine vinegar. Stir until combined + set aside.

Heat the rice bran oil over a medium heat in a deep frypan. Saute the onion + garlic until translucent. Add the mince, continue to fry + break up the mince. Cook for five minutes. 

Add the carrot to the frypan, stir through + cook until the carrots soften a little. Add the kale.

Lastly, add the sauce and ginger essential oil and stir through.

Serve the mince in lettuce leaves. Top with spring onions, bean shoots, fresh chilli/chilli sauce + dollops of sour cream … lime wedges on the side!
