New recipe! Chinese-style No Beef and Broccoli 🥦 over some steamed rice for a delicious & satisfying meal. For this vegan version, I used shiitake mushrooms instead of beef and I love mushrooms because they absorb flavour really well. Get the recipe below or on www.thefoodietakesflight.com!
In case you missed it, I am going to plant 2 TREES (instead of 1) for every purchase of my eBook until October 31. You can also find more Asian recipes there (a whole section actually!). Check out my eBook in the link on my bio or head to bit.ly/TFTFeBook 🙂
P.S. currently here in Montréal 🇨🇦 and it’s such a vibrant city! Thank you also to everyone who sent some recommendations! ✨
Chinese-Style No Beef and Broccoli
Good for 2-3 servings
10 dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked in hot water for 12-15 minutes*
2 cups (250g) raw broccoli florets
1/4 cup water
1 small (70g) red bell peppers, sliced into strips
1/2 red onion sliced into strips
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp canola or other neutral cooking oil
Sesame seeds and chopped spring onions for garnishing
3 cups of steamed white rice or other rice, for serving
Note: *Feel free to use fresh shiitake mushrooms.
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp room temp. water
1/4 cup coconut sugar, adjust according to desired sweetness
1 1/2 tbsp Chinese rice wine, optional but highly recommended
1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp sesame oil
1. Rehydrate the dry mushrooms by soaking in hot water. Squeeze out excess liquid from mushrooms and then slice them into 1/2-inch thick strips. If using fresh mushrooms, simply slice them into strips. Set aside.
2. In a bowl, mix all the sauce ingredients until sugar is diluted.
3. Heat a non stick/cast iron pan. When hot, add in 1 tbsp oil. Sauté the onions and garlic until tender and aromatic, around 2-3 minutes. Add in the broccoli. Pour 1/4 cup water and leave to cook over medium high heat until half-cooked. Add in the bell peppers and sauté for a few mins. (Steps continued in blog post)
