Tired, run-down, and in no great hurry to get out of bed this morning and see what the Forces of Heck have planned for me today. Limped home after work in desperate need of something warming, wholesome, light, yet nourishing, that I can cook whilst dancing round the kitchen to Soft Cell’s “Sex Dwarf“, vodka and coke in hand.
Oh look, still got 2/3rds of a jar of miso and ginger paste. Hmmm….
Settled on a version of the tofu and cabbage soup from the other day https://theanxiouscook.wordpress.com/2014/04/27/ich-will/, only with quorn chicken pieces and carrot slices instead. Slung the rest of the veg into a Japanese-influenced stir-fry + some cashews for extra protein. Result.
Now, where was I? Oh yes. “SEX DWARF. ISN’T IT NICE, LURING DISCO DOLLIES TO A LIFE OF VICE……?”
Handful mange tout Half a courgette, sliced thinly widthways Decent handful baby sprouts, peeled and sliced thinly Fat clove garlic, minced Ginger Handful cashew nuts Couple fat button mushrooms, skinned and sliced widthways Tamari sauce (or dark soy sauce with a dash of marmite) Sesame oil Decent dash vegetable oil
Heat the vegetable oil in a wok on high. Add the ginger and garlic, fry very briefly to prevent the garlic burning.
Chuck in the rest of the vegetables, stir a few times, then add the sesame oil, soy sauce/tamari.
Stir fry until the veg nearly cooked, then throw in the cashews.
