Stir Fry Vege with Chinese Wolfberry.


This is what I normally would do when I stir fry vege. I would add Chinese Wolfberry , or known as Chinese Matrimony Vine (枸杞,或杞子) while stir-frying. I started doing this about a year ago when I was in Canada. I was about to leave the country and there was still a packet of this Chinese herb sitting in my fridge. I did not wanna waste any of such good stuff. It is a well-known fact among the Chinese that this herb is good for one's vision. But having Chinese herbal chicken soup (most common way to use this herb) everyday didn't sound like a good idea either. Consequently, I tried to incorporate this herb to my cooking. I forgot what else I did, but to have it with stir fry vege is one of the best idea I have developed so far. I encourage you to try it out. Not only that you can have a faster turn-over rate for this item in your household, it actually tastes pretty good too together with your vege. It would bring some sweetness to your dish. On top of that, you know you're doing something beneficial to your eye.

Something to share.

Good idea, will try it out.
I love kei-ji, but like you say, we always use it in herbal soup, or sometimes steam chicken. Maybe next time should try on steam fish and stir fry veg.

My dad makes it into tea (mixed with other stuff to make it sweeter) and make us drink it every single day. First tasting was a big bleh but finally got the hang of drinking it without grimace :P
