→Want to add more veggies to your winter comfort-food diet? You can’t beat a stir-fry for a quick and healthy dinner, says wok queen Ching-He Huang


This is a famous Chinese dish that is served at all important festivals throughout the year. Typically, a dish such as this would contain straw mushrooms and dried lily flowers; here I’m using Chinese wood ear mushrooms for extra crunch (buy them in Chinese supermarkets and online).

Serves 2

1 tbsp rapeseed oil Knob of fresh peeled ginger, grated

½ tsp fermented salted black beans, rinsed, then crushed with 1 tbsp Shaohsing rice wine or dry sherry

1 medium carrot

4 fresh shiitake mushrooms, rinsed, dried and sliced

Small handful dried wood ear mushrooms, soaked in hot water for 20 mins, drained and sliced into 1cm strips Small handful baby sweetcorn sliced in half on the diagonal
