Chinese wild yam (淮山) appears regularly in my soup but never in stir-fry dishes. When I saw this recipe in tigerfish's blog, I decided to give it a try. However I was concern if the family will take to the taste so I cooked this only when I had 3 dishes + 1 soup + 1 extra chinese wild yam dish, just in case.
This is definitely a healthy dish but unfortunately I won't be attempting it again as the taste was slightly overwhelming for the kids and DH. As for myself, I finished half the portion ;-)
I may give this another try when the kids are much older, but definitely not within the near future.
