1/4 cup unsalted peanuts

1 pound medium carrots

3 tablespoons vegetable oil, preferably peanut

1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes

Squeeze fresh lime juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Put the peanuts in a shallow pan and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool and chop coarse. Coarsely grate the carrots. Heat the oil in a large wok or skillet over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the carrots and cook, stirring constantly, until cooked evenly, about 5 minutes. Stir in the peanuts and pepper flakes and season with salt and pepper. Finish with a squeeze of lime juice and serve hot.
