    Favorite vegetable??? That’s a hard one since I love them all (except carrots – no carrots!). Really love mushrooms, all kinds of mushrooms, fresh or dried. They add so much flavor to any dish.

  2. gao choy fa – flowering chive, cut into 3 inch sections. heat wok. add peanut oil and a couple of big slices of ginger. stir fry for a minute. remove. add ANY protein (salt fish being my favorite) and cook until 95% done. Return gao choy fa to pan, give a few stirs, and voila.

  3. My favorite is long beans, I like them dry fried with a little bit of ground pork.

  4. Right now it’s Chinese broccoli. I love stir frying it with Chinese style bacon.

  5. Honestly, I enjoy stir frying all vegetables- but my current favorite is Grace Young’s sugar snap peas and mushroom recipe!!!

  6. Zucchini and Mushrooms. Can’t pick just one! Stir-fried with soy sauce, a splash of fish sauce, and a little sugar and sesame seed oil.

    I don’t think there is a veggie I don’t like and every one of them is enhanced with a quick spin around a wok. Sometimes it will be using the clear stir fry technique with the veggie as the center piece, other times using sauces to dress up the dish and using the veggies to show case a protein.

  8. I like to stir fry bell peppers because they add so much color and crunch to any dish. You can’t beat stir-fry as a method for cooking them–anything else tends to overcook them and they lose their crunch. I like to get the pan very hot so they get a little bubbled at the edges. A very simple swish of rice wine and soy sauce sets them off. But it’s hard to pick–I love all vegetables!

  9. My recipe is simple but oh so tasty. A swirl of high temp oil in my wok over a custom made 45,000 BTU burner mounted in my sailboat. I toss in a small onion cut in medium sized pieces, two cloves of garlic coarsely chopped, I/2 red and green pepper juliened, 1/2 cup juliened carrots and a half cup of chopped celery. Stir fry for about two minutes making sure the veggies are still al dente. At this point I add a touch of salt and a small splash of soy sauce. and a handful of bean sprouts. Stir fry for about 30 seconds. Stir in two chopped green onions and a touch of sesame oil. Stir for 15 seconds and serve. The high heat drives the moisture out and leaves the veggies crisp. Does not need a lot of seasonings as this method brings out the natural flavors of the veggies.

  10. There are none I don’t like, but I think my favorite is still baby bok choy. Swirl in peanut oil, add ginger and garlic, then the bok choy, then a small touch of rice vinegar, soy sauce, and finish with a little sesame oil.

  11. Wow! There are so many to choose from. A couple that stand out in my short memory would be Chinese Broccoli and Chinese Mustard Greens. The sauces cling and intermingle with the leaves that have a taste like no other.To die for! 🙂

  12. squash is my favorite stir-fry vegetable
