Chinese greens known as yu choy, similar to bok choy, sauteed in garlic and soy sauce. The result is a tender, bright, and amazing vegetable that goes great as a side to any dish.
Begin by cleaning your yu choy by running it under water. Spin in a salad spinner to dry, or blot it with a towel. Cut into thirds.
Get a large nonstick skillet onto the stove on medium heat. Once it is hot, add in the oil. Toss in the garlic and cook for about 20 seconds. Toss in the yu choy. Give the skillet a toss, or use some tongs and gently toss the yu choy.
Add in the oyster sauce, tossing to incorporate the thick sauce. Add in the water, and pepper, tossing along the way.
The yu choy will wilt down a bit. It will only take about 5 minutes, if that. The goal is to have tender stalks and retain a nice, bright green color.
When you are ready to eat, simply plate on your serving dish, and dig in.
The flavor is everything you would expect from great Chinese greens. They are tender, fresh, and go perfect with pretty much anything.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Cassava, also known as yuca, was one of my discoveries when visiting the Mexican vendors at my local flea market. Although the root vegetable is not indigenous to Mexico I seasoned this dish with some popular Mexican seasonings, then roasted it and enjoyed it (along with a couple of cold Dos Equis)!
Grilled fresh corn on the cob.
The big debate? Cook with husks on or husks off? I say husks off! Cook on the grill, this way the sweet corn kernels get a smoky-grilled flavor. There’s no need to blanch it first. Use a stove top grill or outside grill–just peel, remove silk and place right on the grill. Simple as that! Then top it with a homemade chili lime mayo and fresh cilantro.
The best stuffed portabellos ever, and they are gluten-free and high in protein using almond meal instead of bread crumbs!
