Hi all good gardeners, cooks, and enthusiastic eaters of fresh produce.
Here's a simple, tasty, EASY stir fry to make.
I had some pretty old (in fridge over a week) parts of a chicory plant and didn't want to waste it. And a bit of broccoli (not my favorite brassica). So starting with sliced or chopped onions, a minced garlic, and oil, I flavored the pan, and then threw in the greens and about 1/4 cup water to steam. The crowning touch is the mushroom - you can get those at most Asian markets. They're called "shimeji" or "beech" mushrooms. Put them in at the last 2 minutes, so they're nice and chewy. Flavor with oyster sauce, a bit of soy sauce, maybe ginger, and red pepper - mix into your stirred up greens.
ALL greens taste best when freshly harvested or purchased, but if they ended up at the back of your refrigerator, this is a good way to not waste.
