Stir fried glutinous rice, also known as, sticky rice (as its consistency will turn sticky when cooked). It is a very popular type of rice in Southeast and East Asia, widely eaten, in many ways, for sweet or savoury. I am, of course, a fan of glutinous rice, too!

Stir-fried Cabbage with bottled Teatree Mushrooms

“Low fat healthy cabbage dish, cooked with bottled mushrooms.”

For busy working adults and parents, they have most of their precious time occupied with work and children, so much so that they left very little or no time for themselves. However, they are still willing to sacrifice it so that they could prepare delicious homecooked meals for their loved ones. They do not mind at all, as long as their loved ones are happily eating the nice warm food after a long day out…. but having said that, it would be grateful, if there are more healthy yet instantly ready food products available in the market cater to these groups of people to make their cooking less hassle, I guess more individuals will not hesitate to cook at home, just like me. I changed my job from nearby my house to the CBD area, I have to spend 2 hours more in commuting to and back from work every day. Cooking dinner on daily basis has become a chore, in that sense. However, I never thought of giving up, but strive to find more ways to make my cooking easier and convenient. And, I have added these bottled mushrooms to my ‘convenient food list’ recently. Through an email introduction as well as the sample tasting of these mushroom offered by the marketing team of Yifon, I was able to experience the greatness in these healthy and convenient bottled mushrooms. They did not set any conditions on promoting these products, but on my own accord, I thought why not just share my tasting experience with my readers here since it is genuinely a product that worth trying, in my opinion. Anyway, I used it in my recipe.

Express Black Bean & Soy Bean Paste Chicken Stir-Fry

=&0=&

This dish is similar to my preserved black bean chicken dish, but it should be considered the simplified version. Easier and quicker.

I cooked it this way to save some time and effort, actually. Since this is just a resemblance dish for settling our dinner with a quicker fix after being worn out by all my festivities since last year end, I didn’t thought of posting this, actually… But, to my surprise, hubby said this version yields even better taste than my original version. The version which I’ve learned from the tv cooking program of the celebrity chef (laugh)!
