  2. Then add the sliced onion and broccoli and keep stirring for a minute or two.

  3. Add the mushrooms and continue to cook over a high heat, adding a little more oil if required.

  4. Once the vegetables are slightly softened, sprinkle in the chilli flakes, soy sauce, black bean sauce and Shaoxing rice wine.
