Healthy San Choy Bow
The first time I had San Choy Bow (well a healthy version of one that is..) was a few years back when I was staying at Gwinganna Health Retreat in Queensland. I instantly fell in love with the flavours and freshness of this dish and since then it has become a regular in our household.
This is the perfect dish to whip up on a sunny weekend, as a quick lunch or after work as an easy nourishing dinner!
I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!
What you’ll need:
- 1 tbl. sesame oil
- 500g organic chicken mince
- 2cm knob of ginger grated
- 1 small chilli (optional)
- 1/2 cup tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 tin water chestnuts, chopped
- 1/2 zucchini chopped into small cubes
- 1 small cos lettuce or iceberg lettuce
- Corriander and bean sprouts to garnish
What you’ll need to do:
In a large saucepan, heat the sesame oil and cook the chicken mince, breaking up any lumps that form. Add the grated ginger, chilli, zucchini and water chestnuts and mix through. Add the tamari and maple syrup and cook until zucchini has softened.
Prepare your washed and trimmed lettuce cups and place the chicken mix in a bowl to share topping with chopped coriander and bean sprouts.To make a vegetarian version of this dish, or to add a protein boost you could add or substitute the chicken mince for 1 cup of cooked quinoa.
And there you have it, a nourishing meal in less than 10 minutes!!
