Stir in the fresh mushrooms, broccoli, water chestnuts, snow peas, and straw mushrooms. 2) Cook and stir veggies for about 5 minutes. Remove veggies from the wok, and set aside.  3) Heat the remaining tablespoon of vegetable in the wok until it begins to smoke. Stir in the garlic, and cook for a few seconds until it turns golden-brown.
