@at_dads_table’s Chow Mein

I’m really missing takeaways at the moment, especially Chinese. When Peparami challenged me to cook one of the nations favourite takeaways using some of their tasty products I jumped at the chance and opted for a chow mein, made healthy with lots of extra veg of course!

As the meat in the dish I’m using some sliced up Peparami smoked pork sausage which goes really with some of the flavours here. For added vitamins I’m using wholegrain noodles, pepper, onion, garlic, cashew nuts, carrots, mushrooms, sweetcorn, peas and sesame seeds, making this not only jam packed full of flavour, but healthy too.

So, slice a few Peparami sausages

thinly and cook for 3 minutes in a little sesame oil. Set aside then in the same pan cook first cashew nuts for a few minutes then onion and garlic and then add thinly sliced carrots and pepper followed by a good handful each of sliced mushrooms, frozen sweetcorn and peas. Cook some wholegrain noodles as per the packet instructions then add to the pan along with the Peparami, two tablespoons of soy sauce and a splash of rice wine vinegar. Cook for a further 3 minutes then serve topped with sesame seeds and sliced spring onion

Story 1 (Vegetables cooking)

I’m working with Peparami to recreate one of the nations favourite takeaways, chow mein!
First up, cook all of your favourite veg on a high heat

Story 2 (my son stirring)

Add in the sliced Peparami and stir well before returning to the heat

Story 3 (final dish)

Healthy and family friendly chow mein using pepearami smoked pork sausage
