Stir-Fried Lo Han Chai with Chinese Cabbage

According to the ‘Have a 2-week Supply of Food at Home Now for Any Emergency’, it is recommended that we stock up some canned food which had longer shelf life. One of those canned food that I would buy is Vegetarian Lo Han Chai, besides the Baked Bean, Beans etc. Periodically, I need to check the expiry date and renew the supplies whenever necessary. This is the time, I will used the canned food to cook the below dish by adding some fresh vegetable. No need seasoning, as the canned food had it all.
Preparation: 8 mins, Cooking time: 5 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 1 can Vegetarian Lo Han Chai
° 200g Chinese cabbabe (wok bak/bok choy), cut into broad strips
° 10 thin slices carrot
° 3 slices ginger
° ¾ tablespoon olive oil
° 1 red chilli, seeded and sliced, for garnish
° 2 stalks fresh coriander leaves (optional), for garnish

1. Heat oil in a wok. Add the ginger and fry till fragrant.
2. Add in the Chinese cabbage, carrot and stir-fry briskly for 2 minutes.
3. Pour in the Lo Han Chai and stir-fry for another 1-2 minutes or until the vegetables are soften.
4. Add in the chilli and coriander leaves. Transfer to a serving dish and serve hot.

Yup, agreed. With veggies added, i think it is better than just eating thatalone. Can use to fried bee hoon too.

You brought them over to your oversea home? That's quite heavy stuff. What vegetarian things you can you get oversea?

very limited....mostly are mock cans stuff...and not very varieties to choose from...mushroom sauce from lee kum kee...and that's about all!

we are lucky to be able to ship over...cos we came here as a big group! therefore shipping is provided....else it surely cost a bomb....SF
