After eating ong choy at Seafood Village a couple weeks ago, I've become obsessed with this "water spinach". I even ordered it again the next day at Little Hong Kong Cafe on Sawtelle. They charged $9.95 for the dish! I decided that such a simple veggie should be easy to stir fry. And boy was I right! Went to Ranch 99 today and bought a pound of it for $1.79. Score!
First, clean and trim the ong choy.
Cut into smaller pieces, making sure to toss the rough ends
Saute chopped garlic in some olive oil
Throw in the ong choy and stir fry with the garlic
Keep stir frying till the ong choy wilts down, about 5 minutes
Voila! Take ong choy off heat and transfer to a plate
Enjoy over steamed white rice if you aren't afraid of carbs
This was so good, even my daughter liked it! Yep, kids do eat veggies. As long as they taste good. It's all gone now. *rubs belly*
