Chinese greens are very easy to cook. The stalks are very tender so they only need to be plunged into boiling water for a minute. Oyster sauce and sesame oil give a characteristically Chinese flavour. It is the perfect accompaniment to rice and any Asian dish.
- Trim and wash vegetables. If using choy sum or gai larn, cut vegetables in half horizontally. If using bok choy, cut in half lengthways.
- Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Plunge greens into boiling water for 1 minute (you may need to do this in two batches), then drain.
- Combine oyster sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil in a small pot and warm through.
- Arrange vegetables on plate and pour over sauce. Serve immediately.
