Is this feeling of longing for summer and sunshine on a dull winter day familiar to you? I get this kind of feeling often enough, and one thing I sometimes do about it is to cook something that transports me straight to Thailand or any other great holiday place.
The other day I did just this, quickly I went shopping the few things I was going to need and then took my wok off the shelf and off I went.
The wok standing on my hearth, ready for action, I first washed, cut and prepared all my ingredients. This ensures I don’t get into a muddle later on while cooking, and can cook swiftly while staying by my wok. So before you have a look at my inspiring video below, in which I show you my making of this great summer like dish, I’ll give you a list of the ingredients you’ll need to copy this delicious recipe.
-fresh ginger chopped up really fine
-1 or 2 small hot red chilli peppers, chopped
-1 stem of lemon grass chopped really fine
All this is heated in the wok in coconut oil.
-2 Onions, diced
-a good handful of baby squid (bought frozen at the Thai shop)
-3 cloves of crushed garlic
-5 diced tomatoes
-2 spring onions (mistakenly I think I call them chives in the video)
-a few shots of fish sauce (from the Thai store, the brand without sugar or additives)
-1 bundle of morning glory (a Thai veggie)
-the juice of one lime
Wishing you bon Appetit, and great summer feeling while enjoying this light summer meal!
