Broccoli and Cauliflower Stir-Fry with Cajun Creole Seasoning

Even though I'm based in Taiwan now and most likely will not live anywhere else in the near future, my lovely friends still bring me foreign spices during their visits. Sometimes organic ingredients, such as chocolate and other baking goods, which can be hard to find or come with a hefty price tag. Sometimes they bring me spices, and one of my favorites is Cajun creole seasoning. 

Broccoli and cauliflower stir-fry with Cajun creole seasoning -


  • 1 medium broccoli
  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 1 box/about 12 medium button mushrooms
  • 1 medium squash
  • 0.8 lb or about 8 links of spicy sausages
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun creole seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Break the broccoli and cauliflower into smaller florets. Peel and cut the squash into bite size pieces. Cut the sausages into bite size pieces. Halve the button mushrooms. Peel and finely chop the garlic cloves.

Drizzle some olive oil to a big pan and add in chopped garlic along with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. Turn to medium high heat and sear till that garlicky aroma comes out, but not burnt.

Add in the sausages and sear for about one minute. 

Add in broccoli and cauliflower. Give it a quick stir and cook till slightly softened.

Transfer the mushrooms and squash to the pan along with 1 teaspoon of Cajun creole seasoning. Mix and cook till both the broccoli and cauliflower reach desired texture. Some like it crunchy, but I prefer soft cauliflower. Adjust the cooking time based on your preference.

Taste and adjust with salt if needed. The flavor varies depend on the sausages used too. 

This Cajun creole seasoning not only adds layers of flavors to a rather simple stir-fry dish, but also brings up my tasty memories back in the states. Let's see how long this bottle will last, or perhaps it's my turn to pay my friends a visit instead?

I must get my luggage ready.
