Morning glory or water spinach is a popular veg in Vietnam and is sold everywhere. This is a poor man’s food and is usually stir fried with fish sauce, soy or even oyster sauce. I prefer a combo of fish and soy sauces. The veg has a crunchy texture and is usually served with steamed rice.
- 250g morning glory
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled and diced
- 1 chili (optional), chopped
- 2 teaspoons 3-crab fish sauce
- 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon of oil
Break the stalks of the morning glory by hand, one at a time into 5cm long pieces. Break apart the leaves one by one. Wash the veg and drain well.
Heat the oil in a wok on high heat.
Add the garlic and saute until golden. Don't burn it.
Add the morning glory, chili and sauces. Move the veg around so that they don't burn. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water if needed. Stir fry until the veg has wilted, about 3 minutes.
Serve with plain, steamed rice.
