Heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in the pan and fry the mushrooms and salad onions for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, broccoli and a good grind of black pepper and fry for 1 minute.

Cook’s tip

Shaoxing is a fermented rice wine that is commonly used in Chinese cooking and has a sweet and savoury flavour. You can use dry sherry as a substitute or chicken stock for a non-alcoholic option.

Angela recommends pairing this dish with an ice-cold Birrificio Angelo Poretti Lager.
