Crunchy Peanuts and Sunflower Seeds

This is a lovely topping to almost any stir-fry. The crunchiness of it complements the texture of rice or noodles very well.


  • 75g plain peanuts (not dry roasted)

  • 75g sunflower seeds (sesame seeds work just as well)

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 tbsp oil (sesame oil is best, but sunflower is fine)



  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until everything is nicely coated.

  2. Spread out on a baking tray and place under a medium-hot grill.

  3. Check on them every couple of minutes and stir them around to ensure they get cooked evenly.

  4. It's very easy to burn or set alight to this mixture, as soon as they are nicely toasted remove them.

  5. Place in a bowl and leave to cool for 10 minutes.

  6. Serve as a garnish to a stir-fry.

Serves 6.
