Cooking baby Choy Sum

Choy Sum is full of flavour, it is a delicious vegetable. It grows very easily and some of the choy sum in the garden was a bit close together. So I pulled out the middle two and lightly cooked them for dinner.

2 tablespoons oil, 1 chopped clove of garlic, 1 chopped small birds eye chilli, about 1/4 thin sliced purple onion, 2 tablespoons of chopped walnuts.

Heat oil, saute garlic and chilli till garlic starts to colour. Add walnuts and onion stir through oil. Add Choy Sum cover with a lid that tightly seals.  Turn off heat and let sit for a few minutes.

Check to see if Choy Sum is wilted,  Serve as a vegetable side dish with rice and a main course.

Tip: When cooking garlic in Asian Recipes cook until lightly browned.  In Thailand they cook lots of garlic in oil until it is brown and then put it in a container to use as a topping or additive to their food.
