Hey there! I just came back from Taiwan few days ago. Get ready for some Taiwanese food reviews soon. Meanwhile here’s a really simple, quick and easy recipe for pea sprouts (which is also known as pea shoots or 豆苗 dòu miáo). I tried eating pea sprouts in raw form in my salad but sad to say I dislike the taste. The next best move is to lightly stir fry this beautiful vegetable… and I pair it with my favorite cincalok! Love the result and I’m happy to share the recipe with you.
Please note, this side dish is meant to be eaten with rice. And that’s why it’s quite salty if you just eat it like that. Or you can tune down the cincalok quantity. Anyway this side dish is a winner in my book. 🙂
Stir fried pea sprouts with cincalok.
Gorgeous and delish.
Let’s get cooking!
Rinse pea sprouts. Pea sprouts which cost less than RM2 but upon returning from my holiday, they now cost over RM2. 🙁
In a wok or non-stick pan with medium heat, add oil. Add the garlic and cook until aromatic. Next, add cincalok and chili flakes. Combine well.
Lastly, add the pea sprouts and stir fry for about 2 minutes or less. Quickly dish up on a plate so that you don’t overcook the vegetable (to get the crunch!). Serve warm with rice.
Perfect for working people as you need very minimum preparation and cooking time.
Let me know if you like it. 😉
