Hello, young Padawan
I hope it is sunny outside, and that you enjoy your day well, wherever you live.
Some of you have told me that it has been a long time since there has been any pan vegetable recipe on the blog and that you would really like a little inspiration for these few days to come … what a Padawan wants, your faithful servant bows. And then, at exceptional times, exceptional publications. So stay safe, I take the wheel, we meet in the kitchen, lol.
Regarding recipes, did you know that there is an index of recipes in the blog? It’s classified by season and type of dish (starter, main course, dessert). It’s worth taking a look if you’re out of inspiration, it’s at the very bottom of the “Eat” tab, but I also put the link here.
Franco-Japanese style vegan “chicken breasts”
For 4 servings
A packet of vegan “chicken breasts” (you can find them in WholeFoods Market for example, or you can use some smoked tofu cut into cubes, or some seitan…)
3 handfuls of frozen or fresh peas
2 red peppers
1 cup whole grain Thai rice
2 handfuls of almonds
2 spring onions
5-6 sprigs of Parsley
4 tbsp of Teriyaki sauce and 4 tablespoons of water
1 tbsp of olive oil
Salt, Madagascar pepper
Wash, empty, and cut the peppers into small dice. Finely chop the spring onions and parsley. Coarsely crush the almonds. Set aside. If needed, finely chop the vegan “chicken breasts” if it’s not already done in your packet.
Cook the rice in a large volume of boiling water for the time indicated on your package. Set aside.
In a wok over medium heat, sauté the peppers with olive oil for about 10 minutes. Add the vegan “chicken breasts”, stir and brown with the peppers for two more minutes. Add the peas, teriyaki sauce and water, stir and wait five minutes. Then pour the rice, stir and turn off the heat. Add the almonds, the spring onions and the parsley, season with salt and pepper as desired, and stir one last time.
If you find your rice a little dry, add a little water.
In your prettiest Japanese bowls or soup plates, place a few spoons of this sumptuous mixture. Accompany this pan-fried with a small green salad, or whatever you decide!
I wish you to have a beautiful sunny weekend.
