    1. Grate the zest of the lime and squeeze 1 tablespoon of the juice into a small bowl. Add the coconut milk, soy sauce, ginger, sugar, cornflour and if you are using it, the curry paste then mix together. Set aside.
    2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. Add the onion and garlic and stir fry for 2 minutes until slightly softened. Add the broccoli florets and stalks then the mushrooms and continue to stir fry for a further 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

    A great quick recipe, with low spicy heat (for those that don't like lots of heat) and full of natural fresh tastes!  -  20 Nov 2011

    If I make it again I will decrease the lime, increase the coconut and the green curry paste. Fresh flavours  -  13 Mar 2017
