Mushroom San Choy Bau

IMG_5312This recipe is good to use up any left over or sad-looking vegetables in your fridge. Mushrooms, lettuce and carrots are the only essentials – other than that you can put in whatever’s around and add noodles if you’d like.


2 large mushrooms, finely chopped

2 large carrots, grated

1 Zucchini, finely chopped

3 Celery sticks, finely chopped

3 Spring onions

1 cup peanuts or home made peanut butter

60 ml soy sauce

1 chili

2 cloves garlic

½ teaspoon ginger

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 cup coriander

1 Iceberg lettuce



  1. Crush the garlic, chili and ginger until they form a paste. Lightly fry the paste in a wok.
  2. Place the vegetables and peanuts in the wok and fry on high heat until the vegetables are soft and browned.
  3. Add the soy sauce and coriander and mix through.
  4. Take the mix off heat.
  5. Tear off the lettuce in whole pieces (it’s good to cut them at the base).
  6. Eat with your hands by wrapping the mix in the lettuce leaves.
