Stir-Fried Pea Shoots (Dow Miao) with Garlic or Ginger

Time is a luxury many cooks do not have. For a quick and easy stir-fry after a long tired day, look for vegetables do not required lots of preparations and quick to wash like dow miao. I prefer garlic over ginger for this dish. Other greens that can be stir-fry in this style are baby spinach, chye sim, bok choy, okra, nai bai, winged beans and di huang miao.

Preparation: 5 mins, Cooking time: 5 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 200g dow miao (pea shoots)
° 2 clove garlic or 2 slices ginger, finely chopped
° ¾ tablespoon olive oil
° 1 teaspoon cooking rice wine (optional)
° salt to taste

1. Heat oil in a wok. Add the garlic or ginger and fry till golden brown.
2. Throw in the dow miao, drizzle cooking rice wine over it and stir-fry briskly for 1-2 minutes. Season to taste with salt.
3. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately.
