A simple stir fry to accompany most Chinese meals.
1 bunch choy sum – stalks and leaves kept separated and cut into 4 cm lengths
3 cloves garlic – sliced thinly
1 large red chilli – sliced (optional)
4 portions hard shanghai tofu – cut into two lengthways and sliced thinly
2 tbsp oyster sauce – you may use a vegetarian oyster sauce variety to make this a vegetarian dish
2 tbsp light soy sauce
Heat a wok and add about 2 tbsp of oil and fry the garlic until aromatic. Add in the tofu and fry for 30 secs.
Next add in the choy sum stalks and I tbsp of the soy sauce and oyster sauce. Fry for 1 min. Next add in the leaves and the remainder of the sauce. Add more sauce if desired. When the leaves have wilted, add in the chillies and add salt if desired (I don’t as the soy sauce and oyster sauce are salty enough for me). Lift and serve hot with rice.
