When the laziness kicked in and yet wanting a well-balanced home cooked meal with greens, this is the dish to go to.

Any fresh greens you like will do, be it xiao bai cai, cai xin, sheng cai, etc etc. Normally i will just grab the nicest looking greens available and it happens to be baby cai xin (耗油菜心苗).


Blanched Greens with Oyster Sauce 耗油菜心苗
(adapted from NoobCook)

1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp hot water
1/2 tsp sugar

1. Blanched greens for a couple of minutes. With or without oil/ sugar/ salt.
2. Plate greens and drizzle with oyster sauce mixture.
3. Serve hot.

Personally I’m not a greens-person, so I will double the sauce mixture for a regular packet of greens (~300g). No fix rules in the kitchen, adjust to your taste.

p.s. i omitted the garlic oil because when laziness takes over, minimum washing is the key. the fried shallots were by my parents’ helper.
