  • 12 pieces quail eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 1/2 cup water or chicken stock
  • 1 cup frozen sweet peas, thawed
  • 1 cup table cream

  • In a wide pan over medium heat, heat butter until melted. 
  • Add onions and garlic and cook, stirring regularly, until softened.
  • Add fish sauce and continue to cook for about 1 minute.
  • Add carrots and jicama and stir to combine. 
  • Add water or stock and bring to a boil. Continue to cook for about 7 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender yet crisp and liquid is reduced.
