Broccoli & Mushroom Stir Fry

Broccoli & Mushroom Stir Fry.

This is a terrific combination of my favourite veggies. Sundays are for lazing around. Although a lot of people love to cook elaborate on Sundays, I somehow cannot spend too much time in the kitchen on Sunday. I am always on a lookout for delicious and quick snack/meals. 

This yummy stir fry is great on it’s own as a snack or a perfect accompaniment to the main dish. It tastes wonderful without any additional sauce but I usually like to make Balsamic vinaigrette for my share. The husband loves it as is.

To make this, clean and chop broccoli and button mushrooms into bite sizes. Then in a pan, heat cold pressed sesame oil, add garlic and red chilli flakes, and then the broccoli and mushrooms. Stir fry on medium high for a few minutes. Add aromatics of choice, I use thyme. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper. Top it up with some toasted sesame seeds and roasted peanuts and enjoy! The detailed recipe with measurements and for balsamic vinaigrette is in the recipe card below.
