1poundGai Lan*washed and drained see Notes for substitutions
Thumb-size gingerthinly sliced
2garlic clovesfinely chopped
½teaspoontoasted sesame seedsoptional
Wash and trim a bit of the gai lan’s stem-ends. If using regular ones, cut in half or thirds.
Heat a large wok/saute pan. Drizzle the oil and add in the ginger. Saute until starting to brown then add the garlic in. Stir and spread the gai lan around the pan. Cover for 30 seconds.
Uncover and add the oyster sauce. Stir fry for a minute (to 1 ½ minutes) so the sauce evenly coats each leaf. Do not overcook. Veggies will be vibrant green and crisp tender. Turn the heat off and serve.
*Baby Gai Lan are smaller and more tender than the regular-sized ones. If using the bigger ones, cut each in half or even thirds.*Other vegetables can also be used instead like broccoli, green beans, bok choy, choy sum/yu choy or spinach. Adjust cooking time depending on the size of the vegetables you’re using.
