Recipe by hannahactually
READY IN: 30mins


  • 2
    tablespoons peanut oil or 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 -4
    medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1
    lb leafy greens, thick stems removed and large leaves roughly chopped
  • 1
    tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2
    teaspoons fish sauce
  • 2
    teaspoons sugar
  • coarse salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2
    small hot red chili peppers, thinly sliced and seeded if desired


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Add a few handfuls of the greens, allow them to wilt slightly, then add more greens in the same manner. Toss well to coat with oil.
  • Add the soy sauce, fish sauce and sugar; toss to combine.
  • Raise the heat to medium-high and cook until the water released by the greens mostly evaporates, about 5 minutes. The greens are done when a little liquid still clings to the leaves and the stems are tender. Season with salt and black pepper to taste, sprinkle with chilies and serve.
