If you’ve ever considered veggies boring, this dish is sure to convince you otherwise. Serves 4.


  • 2 tbsp chilli oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 5cm/2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 2/3 cups (250g / 9 oz) carrots, cut into thin strips
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into thin strips
  • 2 cups (150g / 5 1/2 oz) shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cups (150g / 5 1/2 oz) mange tout
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 3 1/2 cups (350g / 12 oz) beansprouts
  • Cooked rice, to serve


  1. Heat the chilli oil in a preheated wok and fry the garlic, ginger and carrots for 3 minutes. Add the red pepper and stir-fry for another 2 minutes. Then add the mushrooms and mange tout and stir-fry for 1 minute.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce and peanut butter until combined.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, make a space in the centre of the stir-fried vegetables so that the base of the wok is visible. Pour in the sauce and bring to the boil, stirring all the time until it starts to thicken. Add the beansprouts and toss the vegetables to coat thoroughly with the sauce.
  4. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately with freshly cooked rice.

Lili has been studying and practising yoga in China & UK for 20 years, and teaching since 2007. She draws inspiration from her training within established, classical yoga systems that focus on alignment, hatha vinyasa in its gentler form, yin, yin/yang, and restorative yoga styles, pranayama and meditation; blending the roots of Chinese healing traditions into a more holistic practice. For her, practice covers not just the physical aspects of yoga but also aligning and unblocking the bodies meridian energy pathways to release Qi energy (prana) which flows through the bodies energy highway, bringing the mind, body and spirit back into balance. “I am continually humbled by my students and teachers, my aim is always to teach from the heart and from the idea that yoga is the art of living, listening and learning, to embody this deeply spiritual tradition” – Lili Chen.
