One Pot Winter Warmers: ‘San Choi Bau’

Basically a yummy little stir fry popped into ice berg lettuce cups. The hot veggies in the cool cups is something a bit special, as is the softb-ness of the veg’ against the crunchy lettuce. I’m a bit of a fan, clearly. I don’t use kecap manis anymore, as it contains palm sugar, so leave that out. Instead you can stir in about one tbsp coconut palm sugar, but that’s optional. I also add other veggies now like –

1 cup canned bamboo shoots and water chestnuts, finely diced
1 cup mushrooms, diced (any type but shiitake are the best here)
1 carrot, cut into matchsticks or diced

Add in some protein if you like. I’d use diced, firm, marinated tofu or tempeh, but organic chicken, meat, pork or sustainable fish would work also.
