Mushrooms go into the market basket all year round and there is a brilliant assortment available from Dr Noel Arrold at his Li Sun stall at the Capital Region Farmer's Market every weekend. Mushrooms at the ready, some thin slices of beef eye fillet, garlic, Buderim Ginger baby stem ginger, Sesame Oil, light Tamari Sauce and some of our home grown broccolini, I prepared a quick, delicious and nutritious wok tossed meal. No recipe is needed for this one, just fresh ingredients and a searing hot wok.
Watch this space for more on Dr Noel Arnold and his wonderful Li Sun mushrooms, and mushrooms generally, in a future Good Things post.
