I love the crunchy texture of Choy Tam (Brussel Sprouts) leaves. It tastes real good if it is plainly stir fried with garlic. Some vegetarian do not take garlic but some do. Anyway if you don’t take garlic, then you can omit this ingredient when stir frying the Choy Tam.
My family normally eats this dish with steamed rice. It is very simple to prepare and probably takes you around 5 minutes! The secret to preparing a good and nice is that your wok must be very hot. If you fry it at high temperature for a short period, there will be a very nice ‘wok hei’ (wok burn) aroma.
Choy Tam, cleaned
Garlic, 3 cloves, chopped finely
Salt to taste
Vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon
Heat up wok and add in some vegetable oil. Adjust the heat to high and put in the choy tam. Fry for a short while and add little water. Add salt to taste. Quickly take out the choy tam from the wok to prevent further cooking.
