Stir Fried Water Spinach With Garlic

This side dish is all about the greens. Water Spinach (Ong Choy) has a delightfully light and crunchy texture, unlike, regular spinach, which tends to be a bit stringy.


1/2 Cup Chopped Onion

4 Minced Garlic Cloves

1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Ginger

1 Split Serrano Pepper

1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

1 Pound Fresh Water Spinach (Washed & Trimmed)

In a large-size skillet add the sesame oil and turn heat to medium-high. Sauté onions, garlic, ginger, and split Serrano pepper for 1 minute. Stir in kosher salt and pepper. Add water spinach and sauté for 2 minutes. Add sugar and vinegar. Cover and cook for 3 minutes or until wilted. Remove from heat and throw away Serrano pepper. Transfer to serving platter. Serves 4
