Broccoli and shiitake stir-fry

Dried shiitake mushrooms add an exquisite flavor to an homemade version of a Chinese classic.
Serves 2:
Broccoli (500g - cut into florets)

Rapeseed oil (2 tbsp)
Red onion (1/2 - thinly sliced)
Shiitake mushrooms (6 - dried, reconstituted in 1 cup boiling water for 20 minutes, sliced)
Garlic (1 clove, finely minced)
Ginger (1 tsp- grated)
Soya sauce (2 tbsp + 2 tbsp water)

1) Fill the wok or saute pan with about 1 cup of water, add the brocolli florets and bring to a boil. Cover and let steam until crisp-tender. 

2) Drain the brocolli, wipe the wok dry and return wok to the stove.  
3) Heat the wok over high heat and swirl in the cooking oil. When very hot, add in the onions and mushrooms and stir fry for 3 minutes. Turn the heat to medium, add in the brocolli, ginger and the garlic and quickly stir fry for an additional 30 seconds or until fragrant.
4) Stir in the soya sauce and the water, enjoy!
