“Simple remedy to take care of your eyes and throat during the bad hazy weather. Boil and serve this to the whole family, every other day, please.”
Haze hits a severe unhealthy level of over 200 PSI today. My windows and door are all closed, but I am still feeling dizzy, sore throat and eyes discomfort. Everyone is supposed to be out there enjoying the public holiday, but the road seems quieter than usual, looking down from my windows.. Yes, it’s best to stay home, especially young children.
And, I wouldn’t stop telling you how great and healthy benefiting avocado is. For both the adults and children. Other than the rich vitamins and mineral it has, it’s also one of the good fats our body needs. Regular consumption of avocado benefits our brain.
“It’s just the abalone sauce you need in your stir fry!”
In order to fully appreciate the freshest taste and natural sweetness Of the fresh pea sprouts as well as the highly nutritious mushrooms, minimal use of condiment to taste is more than just required. I needed only the abalone sauce in my recipe.
If you are a vegetarian, use the mushroom sauce. Otherwise, the Abalone sauce is the best to go with this stir fry! That’s because the golden spring mushroom (金源菇) used in this recipe yields a tinge of ‘seafood’ taste after cooked. Hence, adding abalone sauce was sure to good in enhancing the flavor of this seafood-tasted mushroom in the dish.
“A ‘copy-cat’ recipe that worth following, giving you healthier new year goodies!”
Obviously I did not create this recipe. I am not the first few to make this snack, too. I was just following the ‘trend’, if you already are making it or have done it many time. For Chinese Lunar New Year celebration, for your own consumption or as gift during new year visits. It’s surely healthier (it’s air-fried) for you and your wallet! It’s easy, too!

“Sometimes, just cook and eat a simple, quick and easy vegetable dish is great.”
Did I tell you that I was on strict vegetarian diet for a period? It was on religious purpose. Hence, I eat pure vegetarian meals, without garlic, onion and spring onion, this time.
This was a dish I liked during these days. Easy and pure. Yes, unlike my previous Assorted Asian mushroom recipe, I did not cook this with garlic and ginger. Also, used only 2 kinds of mushrooms, this time.
The sauce in this dish goes perfectly well with steamed white rice.
