I used to stock my fridge with fresh mushrooms. It is very versatile as easy to cook and go pretty much with lots of flavour. My family love fried tofu therefore I serving the braised tofu with fresh white Shimeji (新鲜白玉菇). Along with the mushroom I added chives as part of my family meals’ green. Simple stir fried dish and yet satisfying ^^
