Pac Choi with Garlic

Fragrant garlic lends big flavor to sautéed pac choi greens.

Ingredients:
1 bunch pac choi
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic
⅛ cup chicken stock or white wine
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Start by trimming the stem off, just the end, to ensure the pac choi cooks evenly. Separate out the leaves, keep the tender center intact and clean under running water. Drain.

2. Finely mince garlic. Heat olive oil in wok or frying pan. Add the garlic to the heated pan.

3. Turn the heat to medium-high. Let the garlic gently sizzle in the oil. When it becomes fragrant and light golden brown, add the pac choi leaves.

4. Toss very well to coat each leaf with the flavored oil for approximately 15 seconds. Pour in broth or wine. Immediately cover and let cook for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

*Variation: This dish is also lovely topped with sautéed morel mushrooms.
