Stir fried Mixed Vegetables with Fresh Lily bulb_ 缤纷百合_2016 CNY dish_金猴报春

We can easily get fresh Lily bulb from the market during this time (CNY). I like to just simple stir fried it with mixed vegetables, it taste crunchy and sweet.

You can stir fry fresh lily bulb with mixed  vegetables like celery (this time i didn't use), sweet peas, carrot, lotus root and etc. With all these difference colour of vegetables, it become a nice and colourful dish to be served during CNY re-union dinner.

The tip to get the vegetables taste crunchy and nice is to very quick stir fry.
