Simple Vegetarian Stir Fried Young Sweet Potato Shoots Recipe

This inexpensive vegetable is tasty and easy to cook. Sweet potato shoots (pucuk ubi keledek) normally do not contain harmful agricultural chemicals because they are rather easy to cultivate. I planted some in my backyard and they grew a little too ‘wild’. Therefore I have to get rid of them. Anyway, one bunch of sweet potato shoots average price is around RM1 (USD 0.30).

Sweet potato shoots, 1 bunch, cut into bite sizes
Garlic, 3 pcs, chopped finely
Vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste

Heat up frying pan and add in a little vegetable oil. Add in the garlic. Put in the sweet potato shoots and turn up the heat. Stir fry for a short while and add a little water. Bring to a boil and put in salt to taste. Serve with steam rice while still hot.
