This is another scheduled post while I am away. Thanks very much for visiting and also your lovely comment. Happy reading and cooking. Hope you have a wonderful day everyday.

Cheese is not something that I use very often in cooking and baking. It’s mainly because I did not grow up on dairy food. Besides, dairy food like cheese is very expensive back home in Malaysia. So imagine the shock when I came here to Scotland and find big shelves of milk , cheese, butter and cream in all sizes in the supermarkets. It just blew my mind! I have tried quite a number of them but not all yet. Still learning!

There’s one cheese which I actually quite like and that’s feta cheese. It’s a little salty, creamy and tastes quite like the salty fermented bean curd which the Chinese likes to eat, usually with congee, and is often referred to as Chinese cheese.

Tender stem broccoli is a very delicious vegetable. It has a natural sweetness of it own. As the name implies, it’s tender and quick to cook.

This Tender Stem Broccoli With Feta Cheese Stir Fry recipe is very simple and easy. The combination of the cheese and the crunchy yet tender broccoli was just fabulous. This is the first time I tried it. It’s one I will cook again. You can adjust the amount of the ingredients below.

Add the broccoli and stir fry until it’s cooked to your liking. I love it with still some crunch to it. Just before you dish up, add the feta cheese, give a quick stir and dish up. I had it with rice and really like it. But I’m sure this would be delicious with pasta or noodles too.

There are several types of broccoli. Have you tried them all? Which one is your favourite? Please share, add and comment in the comment box below.

I love broccoli that have a lots of fibre in it. I would like to try this with feta cheese, sounds so delicious.

I thought those are kai lan…or Chinese broccoli but no, they are broccoli with lots of stems. Somebody just asked me for a recipe…can refer him to you or perhaps I’ll cook a dish soon and post on it.

That looks good! I have never used cheese for stir fried either, one reason being chinese stir fry dishes rarely call for cheese to be added. THis is something different indeed. A good marry of different cultures.

claire  on November 1st, 2010

wow..what an unique dish, Mary.. kailan with cheese ingredient.. i wonder how that will taste..

Hi Mary, your stir fry looks beautiful and so delicious! Ginger and feta, a creative combination for stir fry. Bookmarked to my Must Try folder!

We eat broccoli at least once a week and I normally just do a plain stir-fry. Add feta is new to me but it sounds interesting.

lequan  on November 1st, 2010

hi Mary,

you’re right, i’m Chinese and i definitely do love my fermented bean curd…lol. i can even just eat plain rice with that for an extremely quick and lazy meal…teehee.

i’ve never tried feta chese with broccoli before, what an interesting and great idea. i’m not picky about my broccoli, but if i had to choose, this would be my fave.

Cheah  on November 2nd, 2010

Feta cheese stir-fry! It’s unique, Mary!

kitchen flavours  on November 2nd, 2010

Looks really good! You are right, cheese can cost quite a bomb over here in Malaysia. There are lots of recipes which I’m drying to try, but most of the cheese are extremely expensive. Feta cheese is in the affordable range, but have yet to try it. Will try it soon. Have a nice day!

Aw, Mary, stir fry feta cheese! My daughter is a big fan of broccoli and feta cheese, but I’ve ever thought of stir-frying them together.
