Eat Your Greens!: Chinese Broccoli in Oyster Sauce

So my hubby bought some veggies in the Vietnamese store on Saturday one looked like spinach/broccoli, so I googled it and looked at images and found out it was Chinese Broccoli/Kai Lan, I have made Bok Choy before, so I thought I would make it in a similar way.

Ingredients: Chinese Broccoli one bunch, 1/2 red onion, little sugar, ginger/garlic paste (lazy way!), oyster sauce and a little soy sauce

1. Saute the onion in olive oil, with ginger/garlic paste, add oyster sauce and soy to taste, then add chopped Chinese Broccoli, a little water, cover and steam for 5-10 min under tender.

Its high in fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Iron
Lovely, so we are going to be getting ours greens tonight!



  1. Never tried Chinese Broccoli-will check in the Asian store this weekend.
    We are having greens too-I used the leaves of the khol rabi instead of throwing it.Made a sabzi with potatoes-turned out well :)

  2. sounds good will look forward to recipe lol

  3. I love chinese brocoli. It's so delish. I don't get to the asian market around here much and there are plenty. Maybe I should. I used to go all the time.

  4. I had this tonight too!! This is my favorite cantonese dish (i grew up in Hong Kong) and it definitely reminds me of GREAT chinese food!!!

    Cool blog you have here. I'm definitely enjoying the simple but tasty sounding recipes!!!

  5. I never had Chinese broccoli, sounds great with oyster sauce. i will look out for it to try!

  6. Jenn: go tot the Asian Market!!!, it was my first time locally, loved it
    LuckyTastebuds: nice name, thats cool we ate the same thing, will check your site for more inspiration
    5 Star Foodie: simple and good
    Sophie: oh yeah ginger/garlic paste very common in Indian cooking, in fact Indian grocery stores are a good place to get it lol

  7. These sound great. I'm going to have to hit up our Asian Market...it's been a while!

  8. I have never tried this before. Now I have to go see if I can find it!

  9. mmmmm Sounds like a wicked tasty side dish to me!

  10. Oh now this is good, and very easy. A great standby.

    I try to keep a bottle of oyster sauce in the fridge at all times, just in case of culinary emergency.

    My kids will actually eat brocolli, Chinese or otherwise, when it's smothered in oyster sauce. I know, it's amazing isn't it?
