Stir-Fried Mushrooms and Broccoli

Total Time

This is a very versatile vegetable dish that can be served over pasta or rice. The recipe calls for fresh mushrooms; however, it's equally good with dried shitake that have been reconstituted. This is from The New American Diet Cookbook.

Very good! Using what I had on hand I used a 12 oz bag of fresh broccoli flowerettes and green onions. I used jarred minced ginger and sauteed it with the mushrooms and onion. I doubled the amount of sauce. I used two tablespoons of soy sauce. I really enjoyed this dish and will be making it again.

This certainly wasn't bad but it wasn't great, either. The sauce was very bland and I had to add about another cup of vegetable broth to make enough sauce to cover all the veggies. I would make it again with maybe a few crushed red pepper flakes, more ginger, or more soy sauce - something to give it more flavor.

I thought this was delicious. The sauce is really good. I made as directed, except that I added a sliced red bell pepper with the broccoli, and I sprinkled toasted sesame seeds on top to serve. I will make this often, as we eat a lot of veggie stir fries here. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT6.
