Shiitake Mushrooms & Mustard Greens in Sweet Garlic Hoisin Sauce




Stir fried vegetables is a good way to make a quick side dish or a vegetarian meal.  This Chinese style stir fry combines Shiitake mushrooms with mustard greens in a sweet garlic ginger hoisin sauce. A quick, easy and flavorful dish.

Serve it with steamed jasmine rice or on a bed of noodles.  Also goes well as a side dish to stir fried meat dishes such as Mongolian Beef or Beef Bulgogi.

Servings: 2
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce (low sodium)
3 Tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
1 Teaspoon Sugar
2 Tablespoon Sesame Seed Oil
6 oz. Shiitake Mushrooms (kept whole)
2 Large Garlic Cloves minced
2 Slivers Ginger
1/2 Bunch Chinese Mustard Greens cut into 2 inch lengths

Place the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sugar and 1/2 cup water in a medium bowl.  Whisk the ingredients together until well combined.  Set aside.

In a large skillet or wok place the sesame seed oil over high heat.  Toss in the Shiitake mushrooms and stir fry until soft (about 5-7 minutes).  Add the garlic and ginger and stir fry until fragrant (about one minute).  Pour in the soy sauce/hoisin mixture and let simmer to reduce the sauce (about 3 minutes). Add in the mustard greens and stir fry the ingredients until the greens are wilted (about 5 minutes).
Season with salt according to taste.

Transfer the vegetables with sauce onto a large plate or bowl and serve.  Enjoy.
