Cauliflower and Broccoli Stir Fry

Cauliflower and Broccoli Stir Fry

Sometimes the cauliflower and broccoli you can buy are humongous, they are so big you can only use half of them. What do you do with the other half? Well you can try the different cauliflower and broccoli recipes we already posted here but if you just want to cook both of them together then this is your best bet.

This Cauliflower and Broccoli Stir Fry recipe we are posting today are made out of my left over vegetable from a chopseuy I recently made. It uses common ingredients you find in an Asian household like dried shiitake and Chinese cooking wine. A really simple dish you can enjoy on its own or as a side dish.

  1. I love eating stir-fry and cauliflower and broccoli is one that I cook very often too! I usually just add salt or soy sauce or oyster sauce to them, shall try out your version one day, looks delicious!

  2. Such a great way to pack some tasty veg & delicious ingredients together. I’ve been trying a purée of cauliflower & broccoli for my son (which he occasionally eats.) Though this looks far, far tastier!

    I love cauliflower overseas, just boil…so sweet and fragrant. Sadly, the ones here are bland, none of the the nice fragrance. I suspect they are too old or maybe, harvested too early for export, and each day, they keep cutting the black parts away to keep it looking white and nice. That is why I never buy to cook and eat.
