Chef's Note
The secret is in the way you cut the carrots. The Chinese are masters of thinly slicing their vegetables on the diagonal by hand; you can use a mandolin, but the diagonal cut is very important.
Ingredients for 4 servings
- 450 g (1 lb.) Carrots
- 2 tbsp. oil
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) chicken stock
- 1 green onion (white and green parts)
- Salt and pepper
  1. peel the carrots; slice them thinly on the diagonal;
  2. heat the oil in a wok; add the carrots and keep the temperature on maximum for 30 seconds;
  3. reduce the heat to medium; add the broth and salt; cover and cook - 2 minutes for crunchy vegetables, 5-10 minutes for tender; stir occasionally during cooking;
  4. just before serving, sprinkle with green onion and pepper.
