STUDENT SPECIAL: Stir-fried morning glory over rice

14 Dec

This is a great recipe for students. For those of you living in NYC, you easily can buy this everywhere in chinatown. From the supermarket as well from the street stands. Not only is it one of my favourite dishes (I have got it from the restaurant Lao Wai) – It only takes about five minutes to make, it is cheap, super-healthy and tasty! So, enjoy!

2 servings

You need

4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

1/2 cup of water mixed with 3 tbsp maizena

2 teaspoons of salt

1/2 red chili

1 bunch of morning glory (water spinache) , the leaves cut into aprox 5 cm big pieces

Oil for frying – preferably sesame oil

1. Heat up oil in a pan on the highest heat

2. Add the morning glory, stir properly

3. After two minutes, add chili and garlic

4. When the morning glory is soft and almost done, add the salt and the water

5. Let it cook for 1,5 minute

6. Serve over rice
