I am not feeling well, nothing major, just a bit of cold. Still, my grand plan of making more complicated dishes must be shelved and I can only manage to make simple dishes like this for now. Good thing is this dish is fast and really easy, not to mention pretty healthy and probably just what I need at the moment. And, if you are vegan/vegetarian, don’t forget that oyster sauce is not vegan/vegetarian friendly, you may want to use mushroom sauce which is a very good substitute for oyster sauce.
