..Stir Fried Sweetcorn, Sugarsnaps & Shiitake.

This dish is deceptively simple. Three vegetables in a stir fry..yes, so far, so simple. Okay, so you get three of your five-a-day and...? Well, think about the combination. Sweetcorn for sweet flavours, sugarsnaps for a crunchy texture, shiitake for a lovely fleshy texture and that woody, nutty flavour. And then there are some simple extra tastes - butter for a little richness, salt and pepper seasoning and a little parsley. Yes, it's simple and it's quick to prepare but taste-wise this dish ends up as much more than the sum of its parts. You can eat it as the Japanese do as a vegetable side dish or as a main course when you want to eat some warming, satisfying, healthy vegetable goodness. The ingredients below are for two side servings, so if you want to make this as a main with rice, just double up on the amounts. I don't think I need say anything more except, try it out and see for yourself.
