Number of serving: 2
2-3 thin slices of ginger;

uffa, peeled and sliced into slightly thick chunks;

oyster mushrooms (note: try other fresh mushrooms as a variation),

roughly sliced; ready-to-use ginkgo (store-bought, usually in a sealed pack or can);

3-4 tablespoons water;

drizzle of sesame oil;

salt and white pepper to taste


  • Heat a little sesame oil in the pan and fry the ginger till fragrant. Add luffa and mushrooms, and mix well.
  • Add water (so that mixture does not dry up so fast), and allow the mixture to come to a slight simmer, then add in ginkgo.
  • When the luffa is almost cooked (turns slightly soft), add salt and white pepper to taste and finish off with a drizzle of sesame oil.
