  1. Place a large, dry frying pan on a medium heat and toast the peanuts for 3 mins until golden. Use a pestle and mortar to bash until crushed.
  2. Peel and finely slice the garlic and ginger. Place the pan back on a medium heat with 1 tbsp groundnut oil. Fry the garlic and ginger for 3 mins until golden, then transfer half to a plate and set aside.
  3. Place the pan on a high heat, add the vegetables and stir-fry for 2 mins. Add the grains with 1 tbsp hoisin sauce and toss until everything is piping hot and coated in the sauce.
  4. Place a smaller, lidded frying pan on a medium heat and add 1 tbsp hoisin sauce with 2 tbsp water. Once bubbling, crack in the eggs and pop the lid on. Cook the eggs for 2 mins, or until cooked to your liking.
  5. Pack the veggie rice into little bowls and turn out onto serving plates for old-school presentation style! Cut the lime in half and click apart the lettuce leaves into cups, then arrange on the side with a little pile of crushed peanuts. Top the rice with the hoisin egg, sprinkle over the reserved crispy garlic and ginger, squeeze over the lime and tuck in!
