Mushrooms and Pak Choi stir-fry, a mouthwatering, simple dish.


  • 2 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • 500g mushrooms
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2.5 cm piece of ginger, finely chopped
  • 3 pak choi or tatsoi, quartered, or use 120g spinach
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 6 spring onions, sliced


  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large wok or non-stick frying pan over a high heat. When hot, add half the mushrooms and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, until turning golden and softened a little. Set aside while you stir-fry the rest in another 1 tablespoon of oil.
  • Heat the remaining oil in the wok, add the shallot and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 30 seconds. Add the pak choi and a splash of water and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, until the stems are beginning to soften.
  • Return the mushrooms to the pan, along with the vinegar, soy sauce and spring onions and stir-fry for 1 minute, until heated through. Season to taste and serve immediately with some steamed rice.
