Vegetable Stirfry with Mushrooms, snowpeas, baby buk choy and leek

Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes with a hot fry pan

Olive oil for the fry pan
250g mushrooms
1 baby buk choy leaves
100g snow peas ends cut off
4 finely cut rounds of the white end of a leek
salt and pepper to taste

Very easy to make as a meal or side dish.  This has amazing flavour.  The freshness of ingredients is what makes this dish special.

Place the leek in some oil in a fry pan big enough to fit all ingredients.  Then add as leek cooks the rest of the ingredients and cook with a reasonable amount of heat until mushrooms start to slightly brown.

If you like this with meat serve with chicken tenderloins crumbed or even some lamb cutlets.
