I love recipes that you can alter and San Choi Bao is one such recipe! I added extra vegetables and lean chicken mince to alter a recipe I found on taste.com.au. You could also omit the vermicelli noodles and add in extra veggies if you like 🙂
Here’s the recipe I created…
500 grams lean chicken mince
1 tblsp sesame oil
100 grams vermicelli noodles
1 carrot, diced
1 red capsicum, diced
1 stick celery, diced
225 gram can of water chestnuts
1 red chilli, diced
1/4 cup coriander, roughly chopped
1/4 cup sweet soy sauce ketcap manis
Brown chicken mince with sesame oil in fry pan. Meanwhile, soak vermicelli noodles in boiling water until soft, drain and dice.
Once chicken is browned add remaining ingredients and stir through, cook until vegetables are tender.
Carefully peel off whole lettuce leaves, rinse and fill with chicken/ noodle mix (or chicken/veggie mix if you choose to omit the noodles). Roll up and eat (trying not to get food all over your face)
