     Title: Bamboo shoots and mushrooms

Try this bamboo recipe that pairs the tender shoots with mushrooms.



Soak mushrooms in boiling water for 20 minutes, then drain and remove stems.

Parboil bamboo shoot, then cut diagonally into one-inch pieces.

Heat oil in a sauté pan. Stir-fry mushrooms and bamboo shoots in heated oil for 1 minute, then reduce heat to moderate and cook for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine chicken stock, soy sauce, sugar, and salt; mix well. Increase heat under sauté pan to high and add liquid, cooking for 3 to 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced by about one-third. Stir in dissolved cornstarch to thicken. Serve with hot cooked rice.

Serves 4-6
