Stir-fried Winter Melon, Chicken and Gingko Nuts ~ page 179-180
garlic, chicken strips, winter melon cut into strips
pre-cooked gingko nuts (I froze the extras!)

I bought a round baby winter melon and this is the first dish
I made with it!  Very simple ingredients with delicious results.

  1. Very interesting dish! I must cook with winter melon more often!

    1. Cannot wait to see if you actually grow your own winter melon too!

  2. Hi Emily,
    I often make winter melon soup but have never stir fry. Interesting dish to cook with gingko nuts. Looks yummy too.
