Broccolini Mushroom Stir Fry

Broccolini Mushroom Stir Fry is a simple dish of stir fried broccolini and shiitake mushrooms in garlic and shallots seasoned with soy sauce, it may sound simple but this packs a lot of flavour, from the nutty broccolini, earthy shiitake and savoury soy sauce it has the most important taste covered, the umami. It’s great as a side dish to any meaty dishes and also great on its own, the broccolini alone is enough to fill that hunger.

I love Broccolini, it’s like a cross between broccoli and gailan, it’s the best of both worlds where you can enjoy the broccoli and the nutty fibrous stems of the gailan. It’s a great replacement where it uses either of the vegetables, how about you where would you think you will use this vegetable?

    Broccolini has wonderful flavor, doesn’t it? And it’s terrific in a stir-fry. Particularly with mushrooms — mushrooms seem a necessity in a stir-fry, at least to me. This looks really good — thanks.

  2. Best side dish I have seen in a while. I bet it is full of flavors. And I love more exotic veggies and I have black vinegar at home! Fried up mushrooms like that, the best.

    This is the perfect time of year for this dish. I’m starting to see this young broccoli at the market. Great combination of flavors! Can’t wait to make this.
