Want a meal that is packed with veges but you wouldn’t even know it? Definitely try this! It’s a great ‘fakeaway’ (fake takeaway) meal, my husband loves it and I think kids would too, and they probably won’t notice all of the different kinds of vegetables.
This makes enough for four people.
What you’ll need
- 1T olive or sesame oil
- 500 g Chicken mince
- 1 red onion, diced
- 1T crushed garlic
- 2t ginger, finely grated
- 1T any Indian curry paste (I used Tikka Masala)
- 1 carrot, finely diced
- 1 courgette, finely diced
- 1 head of Broccoli (about 300 – 350g)
- 1C frozen peas and corn
- 2C rice (any kind is fine) *
- 2t lime juice
- 1T soy sauce
- 1/2 cup(s) fresh coriander, chopped
- Small handful of raw cashews, chopped
* For the rice, I usually use an Uncle Ben’s packet and microwave it.
- Heat a large sized pan or wok over high heat. Add oil and heat, add mince (do in two batches is best) until cooked through and golden. Set aside.
- Reheat your pan (medium heat) and cook the onion for 1-2 minutes, add ginger, garlic and paste and stir until fragrant. Add carrot, courgette, broccoli, peas and corn and ¼ cup (60ml) of water and stir-fry until vegetables are tender (3-5mins).
- Return chicken to the pan and add cooked rice and stir.
- Add lime juice, soy sauce and 1/4 C of the coriander. Stir-fry for 2 minutes until heated through.
- Serve sprinkled with coriander and cashews.
If you want a bit of decadence before serving get 4 teaspoons of your paste and 1/2 cup of greek yogurt (add more to suit your taste) and mix together for a complementary sauce.
This recipe is inspired by this Weight Watchers recipe. This is a 4sp recipe, however the complementary sauce is 1sp per serve.
