Sorry I have not updated this blog for sometime. I have not been cooking lately until yesterday.

Anyway, I am fond of vegetables particularly broccoli. It’s a highly nutritious vegetable from the cabbage family. There are many ways of cooking it. Here, I will share with you how it is stir-fried with other vegetables chinese style.
This is my recipe for Stir-Fried Mixed Vegetable
  • 150 gms broccoli (cut into florets like picture above)
  • 150 gms cauliflower (cut into florets like picture above)
  • 100 gms button mushrooms or chinese dried mushroom (if latter, please pre-soak and cut into halves. Remove stem)
  • 1 medium sized carrot (sliced)
  • 1/2 tin of asparagus clams (optional)
  • 100 gms baby corn (optional)
  • 4 bulbs garlic (minced)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cooking oil (palm oil preferred)
  • 1 tablespoon corn flour (mix with 50 ml water and stir to make corn starch)
  • Half cup hot water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon light soya sauce
  • White pepper powder to taste
  • 2 teaspoon chinese cooking wine (optional)


Heat oil in wok till oil starts to smoke. Add garlic and mushrooms. Stir fry for 1 minute.

Add cauliflower, carrot, asparagus clams and baby corn. Continue to stir fry for 3 minutes, adding hot water gradually. Cover for 1 minute. Add broccoli and continue to stir fry. Add a little bit more of the hot water if it becomes too dry (you will want a little bit of sauce).

Add flavouring above and continue to cook until broccoli is slightly limp. If the sauce is too watery, add a little bit of the corn starch to thicken the sauce.

Serve hot with preferably with rice.
