Spinach and Mushroom Stir Fry

Spinach leaves are very cheap in Baguio City when we were there. It was only P15 for a big bundle. I was really surprise how cheap t was! It's so expensive in Texas that I can hardly afford it. In Baguio I can afford to buy even 2 or more bundles but I only bought one bundle because we can't eat it all. Here's a good recipe using spinach. Mushroom is one of my favorites and mixing it together results in a yummy recipe.
Spinach and Mushroom Stir-Fry


2 tbsps peanut oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup shitake mushrooms, sliced
10 oz baby spinach
1 red bell pepper, seeded and cubed
1 tsp fish sauce

In a wide skillet, heat oil. If using dried mushrooms, soak according to package directions.
Saute garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes until aromatic, around 30 seconds.

Add bell pepper and mushrooms. Stir-fry for around 2 minutes.

Add spinach and fish sauce. Continue to stir-fry until spinach leaves are wilted, around 1 to 2 minutes.

Makes 4 Servings
