Broccoli, Carrots and Mushroom Stifry

This is a simple vegetarian stir-fry that is ready to serve in less than 20 minutes, and it is also my go-to recipe for days when I feel like it's time to cut down on the family's meat-intake. Wonderful for days when you feel like having something healthy and light.

The 'hair' of the broccoli, as my young son calls it, absorbs the tasty sauce and with every bite the deliciousness just oozes into your mouth. The carrots lend a gorgeous pop of colour to the dish while the mushrooms adds to the layered texture of it together with the crunchy broccoli and the slightly mushy carrots. This is a dish that could help with getting your little tyke eating his/her vegetables, if you have a particularly fussy eater, because the oyster sauce masks the 'raw' taste of the vegetables without taking away any of the nutrients. Serve this with a bowl of fluffy steamed rice and I guarantee you will have this platter of stir-fried goodness cleaned out real quick!

Broccoli, Carrot and Mushroom Stirfry

Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
Total time: 25 mins
Serves: 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of Broccoli (cut into bite-size pieces)
  • 1 medium Carrot (cut into bite-size pieces)
  • 4 Shiitake Mushrooms (sliced)
  • 3 Garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons of Oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 2 tablespoon Vegetable Oil

Instructions:

  1. Let's have the broccoli and carrot cut up into bite-sized pieces, the mushrooms sliced up and the garlic minced.
  2. Next, heat up a wok with any type of vegetable oil (I used Canola), and throw in the minced garlic and stir around until that heavenly fragrance is released, then add the vegetables.
  3. Stir-fry for a couple of minutes before pouring in the 1/4 cup of water, leave to allow the vegetables to simmer in the water for about a minute.
  4. Add the 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce and mix that in with the water to form a lovely gravy.
  5. Just before serving, throw in the teaspoon of sugar to balance out the saltiness of the oyster sauce, and when it has been thoroughly combined with the oyster sauce, turn the fire off and serve.
