Happy Pancake Day!

lemongrass chicken
 
I hope you all enjoyed Chinese New Year!  I am still recovering from all the delicious food but had so much fun.  Looking for a lighter dish today to refresh my pallet and nourish my body and thought that I would cook up my Wok-fried lemongrass-spiced chicken with sweetheart cabbage.  Using a wok means that it is a quick and easy dish for when you want dinner on the table quickly.  Chicken is a great source of lean, low-fat protein, which lends itself to muscle growth and regeneration.  Combined with the nutritious spices, it’s infused with a delicious flavour.  As it is Pancake Day, I think I may add the chicken to a tasty savoury pancake.

Happy Pancake wokking!

Get your wok on...!

 
 
Bacon fried rice
 
 
The countdown to the weekend is on!  Dry January is over and we are one step closer to spring – yippee! 
 
I have decided to get my ‘wok on’ and cook up my Bacon and Egg Fried Rice. What I love about wok cooking is that it is quick and easy and, with only one pan, saves on the washing up!  This recipe is a little bit naughty but, oh so nice!  I love it for breakfast on a Sunday morning with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. For a healthier version, cut down on the oil and stick to lean bacon or leave it out all together.  Thrown in some extra delicious vegetables for a hearty bowl to enjoy at anytime of day.
 
Happy wokking!

Congee...

 
Congee
 
For the Chinese, we love eating congee for breakfast.  I think the West often look upon it suspiciously but it really is a warm and comforting way to start the day.  A ‘soul food’ which is both nourishing and tasty! If you start your day with a bowl of congee, there will be no stopping you, although you can equally enjoy it for lunch or dinner, too!
 
In Eat Clean: Wok Yourself to Health, I have a great recipe for Nourishing butternut squash, shiitake mushroom, Savoy cabbage and brown rice congee.  The butternut squash is rich in fibre, making it exceptionally heart-friendly and you will also get a metabolic boost from the spicy properties of the chilli and ginger. 
 
Give it a try!

Time for some comfort food...

Prawn Noodles
 
Last week Thai curry, this week noodles!  Thai style chicken and prawn ho fun noodle, to be exact. This is a really easy wok fried dish and great for a Saturday night treat.  My take on a Pad Thai, I love the combination of chicken and prawns and the fresh crunchy mangetout. 
 
If you are looking for a vegan alternative, try substituting the chicken, prawn and egg with some firm smoked tofu cubes, throw in some extra veg such as sugar snap peas and baby corn and use tamari instead of the fish sauce.
 
One for the whole family – yum!
 
Have a great weekend!
