To stir fry vegetables with minced garlic is a very easy and common way to cook vegetables at Chinese homes. Some vegetables that are good with this method are: water spinach, spinach, broccoli, leaf lettuce, lettuce, baby cabbage, snap pea, snow pea, etc.
- Water Spinach: a bunch
- garlic: 6 cloves
- salt: to taste
- vegetable oil: 1/2 tbsb
- Chop the stem of the water spinach off, then chop them into small segments.
- Use a blender or just a knife to mince the garlic. Here is a link with pictures and videos from WikiHow on how to do that. Then turn the heat to medium/high, add oil, then add half of the minced garlic. Be sure to add them when the oil is not too hot, otherwise they will burn.
- Wait about 10 seconds until the garlic starts to smell. Add the water spinach, stir a few times (about 30 seconds) until they look done. Add a tiny bit of salt, add the other half of the minced garlic, stir three or four times.
- And we are good to go!
