Although this is ludicrously simple, it is very delicious and worth making just like this. Have as one among 3-4 Chinese dishes including rice, and pork.
For 3 as a side
½ head of chinese leaf cut into 2 inch sections
4 x green parts of spring onion, cut into 1cm slices
1 tablespoon groundnut oil or sunflower oil
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
¼ teaspoon toasted sesame oil
How to make
Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan on a high heat and add the spring onion greens. Fry for a minute until it begins to brown and is fragrant. Add the Chinese leaf and toss in the oil. Stir all the time. Fry for a minute or so until some of the leaf browns slightly – this adds depth of flavour. Add 3 tablespoons of water to cook the leaf through – it should almost instantly turn to steam. Add the light soy sauce and the sesame oil. Stir well.
Rice or noodles and other dishes such as Chinese pork.
