Easy Spicy Stir-fried Wombok

Wombok, or Chinese Cabbage, is a marvellous vegetable.  It is subtle and mild in noodle dishes or can be served fiery hot as part of a stir-fry.

Chinese Emporiums sell it for a song and it keeps really well in the crisper sealed in a snap lock bag.  This spicy colourful dish is delicious as a side dish or served with rice for a healthy meal.   Add some meat or chicken and you have a whole dinner ready to eat in minutes.  The coconut gives a lovely texture and flavour… The amounts shown will feed 4 people…
