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.

    Very simple, just stir-fry only.

    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.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
