Stir Fry Kailan Stem & Miso Soup

It’s been a while since my return from US, I can’t find the time to cook a proper meal at home. My cooking rhythm is all out tho am slowly picking up bits and pieces (aiyah, laziness la!).

This is what a lazy ass would whip up in the kitchen on a lazy Sunday.

Stir Fry Kailan Stem


Medium Kailan Stem
1/2 carrot
Brown bunashimeji mushroom ($$$)
3 cloves of Garlic
Oyster sauce
Tapioca starch


Use a kitchen knife to tear off the outer skin on the kailan stem. For the bunashimeji mushroom, gently separate them and rinse away dirt in running water. Leave them whole.

Heat olive oil in the wok. Brown garlic and follow by sliced carrot and kailan stem. You may want to add few slices of ginger to take away the earthly smell from the mushroom. Add a cup of water and oyster sauce. Once the stock came to a boil, add mushroom and tapioca starch.

Ingredients for Miso Soup:

Soya Bean Paste
Egg Tofu
3 big bowl of water

Put all the above in boiling water. Kau tim! Takes me less than 30 minutes to serve my dinner. And no. I’m not a vegetarian *ngek.
