David: Hi Guy-André Guy-André: Hi David David: What are you doing? Guy-André: Look, I pick up some vegetables since today we could make a vegetarian dish David: If it makes you happy, no problem
What do you need? Guy-André: I have zucchinis but I need carrots David: Carrots? Where will I find carrots? Guy-André: Well look, right there! In the carrot tree!
David: The carrot tree? Guy-André: You see?
David: Ah yes, you can not miss it That’s a carrot tree? Sure, why not.Totally normal.
Let’s go ? Guy-André: Let’s go
David: Oh we’re gone. We’re really gone. Dear friends, to make this vegetarian dish my way You need Plantain banana
Fairly easy to find 30cl of red palm oil of course, to fry the bananas Half a teaspoon of fresh ground ginger Salty soy sauce 400 g fresh bean sprouts A clove of garlic, fresh lemongrass Lemon juice Two zucchinis for the salad A large carrot cut in diagonals A bunch of fresh coriander, salt and pepper Remove both ends and use a peeler to make think slices Keep the skin and continue with the flesh It will cook very lightly in the lemon juice with a salt and pepper I’ll put the heat on the stove, add palm oil The lemongrass stick, slice it in two, open it It will add flavours to palm oi I will now sauté the bean sprouts and add garlic Sauté the bean sprouts Bean sprouts don’t take long to cook Fresh coriander Look at the colour it gives off immediately Salt
Pepper Peel the carrot and cut it in wedges, you see
Diagonally And I’ll cook it, as we say, the English way Do you know what that means “cooked the English way”? Guy-André: No
David: It’s boiling in salted water It’s beautiful, beautiful
This is how it should be We have the small zucchini slices Could you please add the equivalent of a big lemon’s worth of juice in the zucchinis? Add the coriander
You see, I put a lot of it Use a spoon to mix Now that we have done it, we’ll set it aside Here are the small wedges of carrots The only thing we did not put in the zucchini is the pinch of garlic Peeling plantain babanas is quite something, let me tell you! Split it in halves, like this, then cut off the ends And then gently use the knife blade
Take off the skin Then, gently cut slices, let me show you You should be able to get three You need them thick because they will be fried Cover with a a few pinches of ground ginger Let it cook then drain Then add lemon juice and a few drops of soy sauce, since it is not seasoned It shows that you worked, Mr. Pelouze
Is it the same in the OR? No, it’s worse Put some zucchini salad
Guy-André: It looks like a nest David: Precisely I cut the plantain banana diagonally like that, up to here then I put it on the plate like this Come on, try to do your own, it’s ok take your time Think of it as an artery
Right Dr. House! Once this is done, what’s left? The carrots Our carrots cut into wedges, cut them again across the middle What you can do to finish up is use the lemon juice you will find at the bottom of the bowl And even a bit more soy sauce So I suggest a drink, as we do ritually before we taste And for all those who have doubts, palm oil is completely trans fat free Those are dangerous Dear Guy-André, enjoy That’s the small salad You have to picture the sun, that it’s summer Guy-André: So, what we did there, it is very flavourful David: Yes, first because palm oil is a product that has a lot of flavour So inevitably, in order to balance it out You will add more flavours Guy-André: The Raw / Cooked mix works well David: I’m going to have a nap
Guy-André: OK, have a good nap. I’ll finish this. David: See you for the next recipe
Guy-André: See you, bye David
