Vegetable craving -not a joke. Meet your new addiction: stir fry Gailan with dried shrimp.
Gai Lan, also called Chinese broccoli or kale, features thick stems and dark green leaves.
Its flavor strikes a balance between slight bitterness and sweetness. Oyster sauce pairs perfectly with the gentle mustardy undertones of Gai Lan.
The tiny sun-dried shrimps in this recipe are widely used in many Asian cuisines, to impart unique umami and sweet seafood-like flavors. You only need a few tablespoonfuls to bring a plain vegetable dish to new heights of deliciousness.
A plain bowl of steamed veggies lacks inspiration. Healthy food should be a delight, making good eating habits stick.
