Simple Stir-fried Choy Sum
LEAFY GREENS AND FIBER ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR DIET.
Fiber plays an important role in our digestive health, keeps us full, and removes toxins from our system.
Think of fiber as a broom going through your digestive tract. It picks up toxins and old hormones along the way so that your body can eliminate them 💩
Fiber is also a prebiotic and feeds your good gut bacteria. Your good gut bacteria then breaks down the fiber and allows your body to absorb the nutrients.
Lastly, since fiber can be quite hard to break down, it serves as bulk in your stomach which helps you feel full longer.
Psst, this recipe works for most green veggies. Enjoy!
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- 2-3 garlic cloves, minced or sliced
- 1 tsp Ri’s Garlic Chili Oil
- Salt to taste
- 500g/1lb of Choy Sum, cut at an angle (separate stems and leaves)
- 2 tsp sesame oil (optional)
- Heat your wok/deep pan on a medium flame and add oil.
- Once hot, add garlic and simmer for about 30 seconds.
- Next, add chili flakes and give everything a little mix.
- Now add Choy Sum stems along with some salt. They take longer to cook so you’d want to give them at least 2-3 minutes extra cook time before adding the leaves.
- Next, add in Choy Sum leaves and salt. Give everything a good toss and cook for another 2 minutes. You will notice your veggies reduce in size (by about half), so plan accordingly if you are serving a bigger crowd.
- Turn off the stove, drizzle in some sesame oil, and give everything a nice mix.
- Add more salt and chili oil according to your preference.
