Add the kidney pieces and simmer over low heat until the pieces have turned white about seven minutes.
Drain the pieces, discarding the water.
Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium heat.
Add the scallions, garlic and ginger, and toss them until you can smell the garlic about 30 seconds.
Then add the snow peas and bamboo shoots, and the wood ears, if you are using them, and toss the vegetables until they are well heated and coated with oil.
Add the kidneys and toss them quickly until they are covered with oil and slightly heated.
