What's for Dinner Tonight? A Peek into my Childhood

No time for a long post so here's a  quick little peek into some basic Cantonese dishes I made for dinner  the other night. Enjoy :) 

 Steamed Egg with Pork and Mushrooms 

Chinese Chives with Sliced Beancurd and Mushroom
1 pack of Chinese Chives (flower buds cut off)
1 pack of Five Spice Bean Curd (sliced)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small red chili pepper, deseeded and dsliced
1 green spring onion, sliced
4/5 chinese mushrooms, soaked till soft and sliced

2 tbsp of canola oil
1tbsp Chinese Shaoxing Wine
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp soy sauce

Heat up frying pan with oil. Add garlic, green onions, ginger and chili pepper until sizzling. Slide the chives, mushrooms in and stirfry. Add wine and keep stirfrying. Put beancurd in and add salt and soysauce to taste.


  1. This looks really great. I'll try this as soon as i get to my kitchen. Thanks for sharing. Chinese mushrooms always look good and taste good. They complement with different menu. Above all, they are healthy. Zhu ling, for example, is a diuretic. A modern study reported that Zhu Ling helps increase low urine production. However, it simultaneously decreased urine production in patients with already excessive urine output.

  2. Yum! I saw some chive in the market and I should have bought some for this.Your dish looks great!
