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…

Spicy Stir Fried Wombok

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 finely chopped red onion

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon crushed ginger

1 chopped chilli (optional)

1/2 a wombok, sliced (about a quarter-inch thick slices)

1 teaspoon of powdered tumeric

1-2 tablespoons desiccated coconut

Method:

Heat frypan or wok, add 1 tablespoon oil

Fry onion, garlic, ginger and chilli for about 2 minutes

Toss in sliced wombok and sprinkle over 1 teaspoon turmeric

Stir-fry about 2-3 minutes more (the wombok will quickly collapse)

Then, just before serving, sprinkle over a tablespoon or two of desiccated coconut.

 

Bon Appetit!
