Enjoy this vegetarian stir fry either on its own or serve it with steamed rice or noodles.
  • 1 small or medium sized red onion, sliced
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 6 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1-1.5 cup Chinese cabbage, sliced
  • 1/2 cup celery, sliced
  • Snow peas, deveined
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp cooking oil
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 1-1.5 cup water
  1. Heat a pan or wok with cooking oil.
  2. Saute onions and garlic until lightly brown.
  3. Add carrots and mushrooms. Saute for about 1 minute.
  4. Add celery and cabbage. Saute for another 1 minute.
  5. Add cornstarch with water mixture. Mix well.
  6. Add snow peas and stir.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Allow vegetables to cook for a few minutes.
  9. You're done!

Make sure you don't leave the vegetables cooking for too long (depending on the heat, amount of vegetables you use, etc. - 5 to 10 minutes should do), as you don't want it all to be soggy.


So, there you go. An easy, yummy meal that's best served with white jasmine rice.
