Stir Fried Broccoli with Straw Mushrooms

Broccoli is good for us.  If I cannot get to shop in my Asian store for my Chinese greens, I would buy broccoli.  Broccoli and cauliflower are more expensive in Malaysia and it was normally served on special occasions and during Chinese New Year.  My mom loved to mix broccoli and cauliflower together for the veggie dish she served on CNY.  Whereas, over here broccoli is pretty reasonable and we have it all seasons.

Sharing with you a dish that anyone can cook at home.  I think some of you have been cooking this at home too since it is a common home cook dish.



Broccoli, about 1 bowl, cook in microwave for 2 minutes and set aside.
1 carrot, cut
Straw mushrooms, drained and rinsed (1 canned, get it at any Asian store)
2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped

Lee Kum Kee oyster sauce


1.  Heat up a wok with some canola oil.  When heated, add in garlic, stir-fry until fragrant and slightly golden.  Add in broccoli and carrots, fry well.

2.  Add in straw mushrooms and mixed well.  Add in oyster sauce and a little water.  Stir-fry well and dish out to serve.

I still prefer Australian broccoli than China broccoli even though it is more pricey. Miss it so much as there is any supply for these few months. Yours look so healthy and delicious! ;)

I grew up eating this and my mom cooks them with cauliflower too :) But I've never cooked this myself. Will definitely try it one day.
