Ingredients

2 large carrots, blanched and cut into matchsticks
2 bunches bok choy, cut into bite size
1 medium cauliflower, blanched stems and florets
8 green beans, remove stems and cut into bite size and blanched
8 Wombak leaves and stems, cut into bite size and blanched
1 can straw mushroom, halved
1 small white onion, cut roughly
1/4 c vegetables stock
1 Tbs minced garlic
1 Tbs Shao Xing Chinese cooking wine
2 Tbs oyster sauce
2 Tbs soy sauce
oil
salt
pepper

Method

To blanch vegetables

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt it generously. Fill a metal basin with ice water, and put a colander or strainer in it. Add the vegetable to the boiling water and cook, uncovered, until crisp tender, or the desired degree of doneness. Scoop the vegetable from the water and immediately put them in the ice water, to stop the cooking and set their colour. Cool and drain, and set aside.

To cook vegetables

Heat 2 Tbs oil in a big saucepan over medium heat, and add in garlic and onion cook for 1 minutes or until translucent. Add in carrots, cook for about 2 minutes, then add in vegetables stock, green beans and cauliflower stems, cook for about 2-3 minutes. Next add in cauliflower florets, wombak, mushrooms and bok choy cook for about 3 minutes.

Pour Shao Xing Chinese cooking wine, oyster and soy sauce. Stir to mix well for 1-2 minutes. Check the doneness of vegetables. Once done to your desired cooking add seasoning. Enhance the vegetables at the end of cooking with 1 Tbs oil (OPT). Spoon onto a bowl and serve with your roast, and spuds. Enjoy your Christmas lunch with family and friends.

Note: When blanching a mix of vegetables, don’t cook them together since they may not all cook at the same time. Start with the lightest coloured or mildest flavoured vegetable, and blanch and refresh each vegetable, one after the other, until cooked as desired.
