Ginger Stir Fry

A while back Aaron requested a recipe using fresh ginger. Since I had actually never used fresh ginger before I had to try a couple different things before finding something I liked; a mix of white cabbage and red pepper. Unfortunately though, the picture was way too dark. This 'Red Daikon' seemed like a good time to give the ginger another shot, and why not go with something I'd tried before?

Ingredients(one portion);
- 2 'red daikon'*
- 1 red pepper, or halve a red bell pepper
- 2 ts peeled & chopped ginger
- halve a lemon
Optional;
-
a couple olives

Start with heating up a layer of water in a frying pan. The layer should be able to half-cover your sliced daikon. Put your 'red daikon' in the water, 5 minutes on each side.
After those 10 minutes, drain the water. Add a little olive oil to the pan and stir-fry your daikon with the ginger and pepper for 3/4 minutes.
As always it's an easy recipe, so you're almost done. Just put it on a plate, squeeze some lemon juice on top. Keep a slice of lemon for decoration if you like, or eat it like I do. Serve with some meat/fish/chicken and your paleo meal is good to go :)

While eating make sure you put every ingredient in one bite, the flavours really work well together.




Thanks Aaron for giving me a bit of a challenge, really enjoying myself! There's a couple more recipes using ginger on the way, as soon as I finish fine-tuning them..

*Substitute with radish or regular daikon(aka white radish) to get pretty much the same effect. You can use white cabbage for a variation.
