Stir-Fried Mixed Vegetables

This dish has a combination of few different vegetables and makes it rather interesting and colourful. Blanching the vegetables instead of stir-fried them one after another is to have a better control on the crunchy texture of each vegetable and to avoid overcooking them. The sauce can be just light soy sauce plus sugar with a bit of cornflour solution as an alternative of using vegetarian oyster sauce.
Preparation: 15 mins, Cooking time: 5 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 75g cauliflower florets, blanched
° 6 snow peas, trimmed and blanched
° 3 baby corns, cut into thick slices and blanched
° 8 slices carrots
° 4 shiitake mushrooms
° 50g-75g fresh bamboo shoot
° ½ red chilli (optional), seeded and sliced
° 1 slice ginger, chopped
° 1 tablespoon olive oil

° 1 tablespoon vegetarian oyster sauce
° ½ tablespoon cooking rice wine (optional)
° 30ml water

1. Prepare the fresh bamboo shoot according to packet instructions and thinly sliced.
2. Combine all the ingredients for the sauce and mix well. Set aside.
3. Heat oil in a wok. Add the ginger and fry till fragrant.
4. Add the mushrooms and carrot stir-fry briskly for 1 minute. Throw in the cauliflowers, sweet peas, baby corn, bamboo shoot and red chilli. Stir in the sauce mixture and stir-fry briskly for less than a minute.
5. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately.
