Today's Menu

2-C's Korean Inspired 

As requested by my good friend Divie, I will be posting this simple dish that I invented specially for my little boy. I called this 2-C's Korean Inspired dish because the two main ingredients are:

Carrots (image from wikipedia)


Chayote (image from wikipedia)

 and are prepared the same way that Koreans slice their veggies for most of their dish.

So here's what you'll need:

2 medium sized carrots (cut in thin strips)
2 chayote (cut in thin strips)
2 medium sized onions (cut in strips)
4 cloves of garlic (crushed)
salt and pepper to taste
fish sauce (optional)


1.) Heat the oil in a wok, then sauté the garlic until golden brown before adding the onions. 
2.) Once the onions all look transparent, add the bouillon cube. You may mash it using a fork.
3.) Add the carrots and stir fry until the oil look a little orange in color then put the chayote. 
4.) Cover the wok and let it cook for at least 3-5 minutes or until desired texture.
5.) Add some pepper for a little spice. Adjust the taste using salt or fish sauce or add about 2 tbsp of water if the bouillon cube is a bit salty to your taste. 

Note: According to Koreans, the secret to their vegetable dishes is the way the ingredients are sliced. It should be almost the same length and width to achieve harmony in taste and texture.

ok, mine looks a little rubbish

Serve it with a cup of rice topped with some sesame seeds to give it a more Korean kick or thin slices of stir fried beef.
