Adding garlic makes this dish both simple and delicious.Garlic is the main flavoring agent in this simple side dish. When cooked quickly, Yu Choy remains bright green and is still nicely crisp.
Serves: 4

Prep Time



1 8.8 ounce package Jade™ Yu Choy, washed and cut into 3" lengths
4-6 cloves garlic, whole
1 tablespoon oil
¼ cup chicken broth
Splash of soy sauce


    Heat the oil in wok until hot. Turn down heat to medium and add the garlic cloves and fry until the cloves are golden brown. This will flavor the oil.
    Add Yu Choy, stir so that each stalk gets a light coating of the garlic-flavored oil.
    Add the chicken broth and soy sauce and immediately cover. Let the vegetable steam for 3 minutes until tender. The Yu Choy should still be bright green, the stalks should be soft and still have a nice crisp to it.
    Transfer to a serving plate and serve.
    Optional: Sprinkle with sesame seeds or a splash of hot sauce.
