蒜蓉豆苗/Sautéed Pea Sprouts with Chopped Garlic

I once ordered this dish at a Chinese restaurant and it cost $20!  It was also quite greasy.  When you make this dish at home, it takes not even 5 minutes.  Super easy, healthy and delicious.


·      1 tbsp olive oil
·      10 oz fresh Pea Sprouts
·      1 tbsp chopped garlic
·      ½ tsp salt


In a nonstick medium saucepan or a wok, heat oil over medium-high heat.  Add chopped garlic and cook for about 1 minute.  Add pea sprouts and stir along with the salt, about 2 – 3 minutes until the leaves are soft and tender.  Now you are done!  A healthy and delicious Sautéed Pea Sprouts with Chopped Garlic takes 4 minutes to cook and costs not even $4!

蒜蓉油菜心/Sautéed Choy Sum with Chopped Garlic

You can use the same technique to make a delicious Choy Sum as well, except that Choy Sum takes about 5 minutes to get ready.  Just follow the same direction, after adding Choy Sum and stirring along with salt, about 5 minutes until the leaves are soft and tender.
