thai satay wraps.
the picture isn't great on this one because gem was home from work and we were more concerned with eating it. this was an experimental idea that popped into my head and worked to a certain degree, but definitely needs some fine tuning. this works essentially the same as a basic stir fry and with my generous measurements probably feeds about three people. aside from the sauce, practically everything can be changed to your own preference.
- 3 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter (whole earth is best)
- 2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 100ml water
- 200g brown rice
- 1/2 bag of quorn pieces (this can be changed to a vegan alternative)
- 3/4ths a red onion
- 1/2 a red pepper
- 1/2 a yellow pepper
- 1 standard can of kidney beans
- 30g roasted peanuts
also, don't forget the tortillas/flatbread for wraps!
firstly, get that sauce ready. mix all the ingredients together until it's thin (you can do this with a spoon just fine, no need for a blender) and it's to your desired taste. next up, boil and drain the rice to however the instructions say. once you're near the end of doing that, commence usual stirfry routine by frying your veg and additional ingredients (make sure to time it all right so you aren't overdoing the quorn/veg/rice/etc) throwing in the satay with the peanuts. if you've never wrapped a burrito before, it takes some practise (above picture proves this) so i'll leave you in the able hands of the aptly-named howtowrapaburrito.com. then EAT!
i only planned this about 5 hours before gem got home, so it was a little rushed (not soaking my own kidney beans and only using standard brown rice). however, i can't argue with using peanut butter in a main meal kicking the ass of every tastebud i have. i definitely need to sort out making my own spanish rice, and it probably could've used a bit more sauce. aside from that, a solid meal which is easily interpreted however you want.
