A very simple stir fry dish lately for I am too busy to think of more elaborate dishes :) I have been on a week's leave just to spend more time with my Jo and I am desperately grasping for more time with her ...I guess every mom will feel the same in my position. We do things together ....she is my teacher in many things and I am her best friend in many way...so you can imagine I have to tear myself away from her soon and it is going to break my heart...I wish time will stand still for now..... sorry, I am lamenting again :p Nay, with skype what is the problem...none! just that the time when I am sleeping she is awake and when I am awake she is sleeping or in class....so looks like I have to stay awake just to chat with her in the days to come.....
Back to this dish...enokitake in japanese or paengi beoseot (팽이버섯) in Korean can be cooked in many different style...soup, tom yam, simple stir fry and as stuffing which I am going to share in my next post. But for the time being , it is this simple stir fry enokitake with chicken breast fillet and lots of carrots...a healthy simple dish that I enjoy !
Cooking wine plays an important part in this dish for enokitake is basically quite bland in taste. I love to add cooking wine in my stir fries ...silly but it does add flavor and taste to my dish :) Enokitake is rich in antioxidants and protein which helps to regulate the immune system. Its crunchy texture makes it a favorite among shrooms lovers. Enokitake is easy to cultivate and has been cultivated in Japan for over 300 years. Initially on woods but now in bottles.
