Skinny & Oriental Peanut Ginger Stir-Fry

Skinny & Oriental Peanut Ginger Stir-Fry

The other week John Lewis asked me if I wanted to try out some of their cookware with a delicious (and healthy!) winter warmer recipe. I decided to cook up an oriental style stir-fry using ‘Raymond Blanc’s Simply Perfect Chef’s Pan’ .. I’ve never got excited over a pan before but the ‘superior non-stick coating’ really impressed me (agh, going to stop right there as I’m sounding really sad!!). Anyway, thanks Raymond.

When it comes to ‘blogging my recipes’ they have to go through a strict ‘tasting regime’ which goes something like this: 1) Cook the dish 2) Serve half & photograph 3) Ask for a rating out of 10 (the response is always ’10’ so I ignore this) 4) Watch to see how much is eaten (most important step).. if the entire dish is eaten I immediately put it on my ‘to blog list’.. and if only half the dish/muffin etc. is eaten I ask ‘why’, and if I love the recipe then it gets blogged anyway.. I then eagerly await your blog comments/photographs and ratings!!! So now you know my secret.. of course many recipes don’t make my blog (not even I like those recipes!!), but here is one where the ENTIRE dish was eaten in front of my eyes 🙂 !

This recipe uses ‘light’ coconut milk and PPB (powdered peanut butter) to reduce the calorie content, along with natural flavourings and sweeteners such as soy sauce and honey to create the most delicious dish.. you’ll want to ditch your greasy/lack of flavour Friday night takeaway I promise you!!


*I used a stir-fry mix containing cabbage, bean sprouts & carrots (buying pre chopped is so convenient!)

**I decided to use 4 tbsp of peanut flour (PPB/PB2) mixed with 2 tbsp water for a lighter alternative to peanut butter

P.S. I kept left over sauce in the fridge for the next day for another stir fry.. and I’m also planning on using the coconut milk in my porridge (yum!).

Nutritional stats provided are based on 1/3 of the above ingredients using prawns & PPB and exclude the noodles!

    Hi Nic,

    Which PPB did you use with this recipe? Sweetened or original? I want to buy a chocolate one and one other but i think that depends on which would go best with this recipe x

    Hi Nic
    Where is the best (cheapest and convenient) place to buy powered peanut butter? Can I get this at a supermarket?

    I just made this, it was delicious. I didn’t have enough peanut butter so used tahini sauce. Honestly tastes amazing.
    Will post a pic tomorrow
