Need a quick vegetable dish? Here’s one to go for. It’s my first time cooking it this way and my family loved it. We had a friend over to join us for dinner and he just loved it. It looks colourful, healthy and flavourful. This dish would go very well with rice, noodles, pasta or even roasts. It’s also perfect for vegetarians. 

Here’s my simple and easy Honey Sesame Carrots And Mangetout Stir Fry recipe.

2 carrots
2 handful mangetout
2T sesame seeds
2T fried garlic oil
1T butter
1T honey
1T light soya sauce

Toasted sesame seeds

Pan fry the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan under low fire until it turns golden and smells fragrant. Dish up.

Cooked Carrots

Peel the carrots and cut into rings. Boil until cooked but still a little crunchy. It’s really up to your preference whether you want it soft, very soft or still have some bite to it.

Fry carrots and mangetout first

Add the butter and fried garlic oil to the pan. Add the carrots, mangetout, honey and light soya sauce. The mangetout actually can be eaten raw so you don’t need to cook it for too long unless you like it very soft. Stir a couple of minutes to heat through. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste.

Add toasted sesame seeds

Add the toasted sesame seeds. Mix well and dish up. Serve immediately. This is so delicious that I can even eat it alone for lunch. I love the crunch from the mangetout.

This week just passes by too fast for me. Can’t believe it’s Friday again! I think my physiotherapy sessions and exercises are taking up a lot of my time. But I’m glad I’m still able to have some fun cooking, baking and blogging. I’m looking much forward to the weekend but just heard from the TV that it will be cold tomorrow…..sigh. But well, still need to keep smiling!

Till then, see you in my next post! Enjoy your Friday and your weekend!

A little bit like my chicken, minus the soy sauce…and replacing the chicken with the vegetables instead. Bet that tasted nice!

I didn’t know that’s what they’re called too - always knew them as snow peas. What a vibrant dish!

Ooh…this dish sounds interesting with the honey and sesame seeds. A beautiful and colourful dish. I’d be tempted to add shrimp…maybe even scallops. I think my kiddies would enjoy this dish. K likies carrots and L likes peas. I’d have this as a light lunch or snack. Yummy!
