Meanwhile, we take out our food processor. Using the shredding disk, we grate our carrots. We remove the carrots to a measuring cup, we have about 1.5 cups of grated carrots. On a piece of wax paper, using our microplane, we grate the ginger. We have about a teaspoon of grated ginger.
When the oven is pre-heated, we spread the peanuts on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake the peanuts for a few minutes until they are fragrant. We remove them to a dinner plate to cool.
In a large pan, we heat the canola oil over medium heat. We add the grated ginger and a pinch of hot pepper flakes and stir for a minute. Next we add the grated carrots and cook for a few minutes, stirring often. We add salt to taste.
When the carrots are tender, we serve topped with the peanuts and some more red pepper flakes.
