Lately, we can find different variety of mushrooms at the supermarket and even the wet market they are stocking up a few different type of mushrooms. They would normally suggest that using few varieties of mushrooms and stir-fry with garlic and oyster sauce. This is a dish of shiitake mushrooms stir-fry with garlic or ginger and vegetarian oyster sauce. I add some veggie to this dish, which can be optional. It is rather similar to the recipe ‘China Chye Sim and Shiitake Mushroom”. The differences are there is a slight different in the sauce ingredients and the amount of veggie is lesser for this dish.
