simple food again

concocted this for supper last night - quick and simple, tasty and healthy. What's not to like? :)

seed and core a red or green (bell) pepper, slice thinly. Slice a courgette into batons.  Quarter an onion, then slice thinly.  Finely chop as much garlic as you like (lots in our case) and some peeled fresh ginger (ditto) - I always use my Braun whizzy thing, which they will prize from my cold dead hands.

heat about 3 tbsps groundnut in a wok until it's Hot.  Throw in the veg and garlic and ginger, and stir about until they look reasonably cooked to you; this entirely depends on how crunchy you like your veg - we did it for about six minutes.  Add the juice of a lime, a sachet of coconut cream diluted with about the same again of boiling water, and the remains of a bunch of rather weary basil that was in the fridge.  Sprinkle a little salt over, and cook for another couple of minutes.

serve with rice or noodles - lovely.
