Stir-fry Sea asparagus with mixed vegetables


Cooked this Stir-fry Sea asparagus with mixed vegetables for the reunion dinner.  It's easy and quick to whip up and the young lotus root slices stayed crunchy, sweet and tasty.


Chewy, sweet sea asparagus coupled with the sweet beans, carrot and lotus root makes a light and refreshing veggie dish!

  1. What a beautiful dish, it's so colorful and looks delightful! I loke lotus root, but it's hard to find it fresh around here. I usually get it packaged in our Asian store.

    For stir-fry, the lotus root must be young, whitish, not the brownish type that's meant for soup.

    Yes, totally agree with you.

    You're right. We have been indulging in a lot of 'wrong' food during this period.

    Yes. Canned. Nowadays there are so many types of this shellfish, e.g. razor clams,pacific clams, limplets, just like abalone. Mine was Vittoria brand, cost RM21 per can. Other brands are Fortune and Besito. Funny, they are only on sale just before CNY.

    Maybe you can find them from those Asian grocers.
