Broccoli Noodles & Florets in Oyster Sauce Recipe


2 broccoli stalks with florets

(thicker stalks work better)

1 tablespoon peanut oil

2 shallots, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 tablespoon Mirin (rice wine)

5 tablespoons oyster sauce

Freshly ground pepper

½ teaspoon chili oil


Separate the stalk and the florets. Trim the broccoli tops into small florets. Blanch the florets in boiling water for 1 minute and then remove to an ice bath. When completely cooled, drain in a colander and then on paper towels to remove most of the moisture.

Peel the outside of the stalk to remove some of the knobs.  Spiralize the stalks on the finest disk to make spaghetti noodles.

Heat the peanut oil in a wok and stir-fry the shallots and garlic for 1 minute. Add the broccoli noodles and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the florets and stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes. Add the rice wine and oyster sauce and mix well until heated, about 1 minute.

Season to taste with pepper and drizzle with the chili oil right before serving.
