my take on Stir-fry Kangkong
The easiest and cheapest recipe I have discovered. Not to mention, super healthy, too.
I was inspired to cook this when we ordered “Stir-Fry Kangkong in Garlic Sauce” at Gerry’s Grill last Christmas. Me and the husband insisted we ordered it for the kids to try. All they knew about eating kangkong is when I cooked fish sour stew. When the dish was served, the kids were hesitant at first. Seeing that there’s no meat products and there’s lots of fried garlic, they just stared blankly on the plated dish. I had to use my popular convincing power. “Better try first before saying NO.”
It worked! They liked the kangkong dish. Even the little girl, who used to get grumpy when I would let her have veggies.
So, I cooked my own version.
This one’s super easy. I tell you.
What you need:
*2 bunches of kangkong (market bought for 5 pesos a bunch)
*3-4 cloves of garlic
*half cup oyster sauce
*ground black pepper
*salt (optional. Oyster sauce is seasoned with salt already)
- Mince 3-4 cloves of garlic. Stir-fry in oil. Set aside half of it for garnishing.
- Add the kangkong stems and leaves. Stir-fry until the veggies turn dark green.
- Pour in desired amount of oyster sauce. Add ground black pepper.
- Mix in and that’s it.
TIP: Do not add water to this recipe as kangkong tends to give off its own moisture as you cook.
This is my kids’ new favorite veggie dish. I’m a happy mom. Why?
Kangkong dish is cheap. Less than 50 pesos for this dish?
