Tri-Colors Stir-Fry (Chayote, Carrot and Shiitake)


Stir-fried vegetables is never absent from the dining table if we had oriental rice meal at home. I like simple vegetable dish with just garlic and vegetables. I love the original taste of fresh veggies. Tri-colors stir-fry is a new dish that I serve after the mix and match experiment. Surprisingly, each of them contribute a delectable flavor to the dish. Ended up, we pretty enjoyed this simple dish. It has the sweet taste and is packed with nutrients.

Tri-Colors Stir-Fry (Chayote, Carrot and Shiitake)

Ingredients:

1 small Chayote, peeled and cut into match-stick
1 small carrot, peeled and cut into match-stick
5 Shiitake, cleaned, stalk removed and sliced thinly

I think wood ear fungus will make a better colour contrast compared to mushrooms, but mushrooms taste so much better :)

SimpleGirl, this is a simple but nutritious dish.

Sage, thanks for dropping by.

Elin, I use shiitake, not enokitake. But, enokitake can be use to replace shiitake too. :)

Pam, not only that, stir-fry is pretty easy to be done too. :)
