    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:6min  ›  Ready in:26min 

    1. Combine soy sauce, oyster sauce, lime juice and sugar in a small bowl.
    2. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add garlic and chilli and stir-fry 30 seconds. Increase the heat and add the spring onion, capsicum, snow peas, eggplant, mushroom and ginger and stir-fry 2 minutes. Add bok choy and stir-fry until wilted, about 1 minute. Add soy mixture and stir-fry until all the vegetables are tender-crisp, about 1 minute. Stir in basil and serve at once.


    that Asian oyster sauce, which is made from boiled oysters, doesn't have a fishy flavour? There are many vegetarian brands on the market made from mushrooms that can be used with equal success.

    Great taste! Great way of getting vegies into the boyfriend! I used red cabbage instead of eggplant to get the same colour (not an eggplant fan). Great on the side of crumbed fish  -  27 Jul 2010


    I used round beans, Chinese cabbage, snow peas , broccoli, carrots and Bok Choy. Tasted fabulous but will double sauce next time. Put cabbage in same time as Bok Choy if using. Great with Chicken Schnitzel  -  26 Apr 2014


    I doubled the amount of sauce as suggested, and it worked really well.  -  29 Jan 2014
