Are you having a hard time to get your child to eat more vegetables? This San Choy Bau recipe by The Secret Serve is a tasty and fun way to add more veggies to your child's diet! Bonus: It's so easy to make with just 10 minutes of preparation time required!

Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 15 mins
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 TBSP Canola Oil
  • 1 White Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stick celery
  • 500g Chicken mince
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 150g mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped water chestnuts
  • 2 TBSP chopped bean sprouts
  • 50g finely shredded snow peas
  • 1/4 cup Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 TSP sesame oil
  • 8 iceberg lettuce leaves
  • 1 TBSP toasted sesame seeds

Method:

  1. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium high heat. Add the onion and celery and cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden. Add the chicken mince and mix together, breaking up the mince up with a fork. Cook for a further 5 minutes.
     
  2. Stir in the carrot, mushrooms, water chestnuts, bean sprouts, snow peas, hoisin and sesame oil and continue cooking for 5 minutes, tossing to coat chicken mix entirely in the sauce.
     
  3. Serve the san choy bau mix spooned into lettuce cups and sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.

Note - If preferred, try tossing the san choy bau mince through vermicelli noodles as a stir-fry, or use as a filling for spring rolls or dumplings.

I like the recipe but I am pretty sure my kids will unfortunately refuse eating such meal. Still will cook it for myself after I do my essay today.
