1 Steam the veges till tender (the egg can hard-boil in the saucepan of water that you set the steamer on top of).
2 While the veges are cooking, prepare the sauce. Heat the oil in a small pan or saucepan. Cook the onion and garlic until tender then mix in the ginger. Add the peanut butter, soy sauce, chilli and lemon juice and mix well, then gradually stir in the milk.
3 Simmer the sauce until thickened. If it becomes too thick, simply add a dash more milk. When the veg are cooked, pile them onto a warm plate. Slice the egg into quarters and use the spicy peanut sauce for dipping.
This peanut sauce is addictive! It goes brilliantly with grilled or barbecued meats and will add a bit of interest to last night’s cold leftovers if there’s nothing much else on offer.
