  1. Oh, my fear of oyster sauce has been cured forever!!! This is an absolutely awesome recipe! I did steam my cauliflower before stir-frying, added some ground black pepper, and used regular onion because I didn't have any scallions. I also used the cornstarch to thicken the sauce, and I cannot wait to try this sauce with other veggies! The only thing I was a bit confused on is that sugar is listed in the ingredients, but it doesn't say when to add it in the recipe. I added it when I added the sauces and it was great. Thank you Bergy! ~Manda
  2. Even people who hate cauliflower will love this. I thought that the world was coming to an end when my son got seconds. I didn't have fresh ginger so I used ground ginger instead and it still tasted great. I just added the ground ginger when I got to Step 4. I used 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in lieu of the lite olive oil so that it would have a more Asian flavor. The sauce is so good that you can use it with a variety of vegetables - preferably vegetables that you can't get your children to normally eat.
  3. very good and makes bland veggies tasty. would also be good w/ a few shrimps thrown in there.


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
