Leafy Greens Stir Fry

It's best to cook this in the same pan right after cooking something thick and meaty like a stew.

  • 1 bunch leafy greens Spinach, bok choy, broccoli will also work.
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Preferably, stir fry leafy greens right after something meaty and flavorful that was in the same pan. In this case, we cooked this in the same pan we used to cook the minced pork tofu. Put the stove on high and add about 1 tbsp oil.
    Add chopped garlic and salt to cook in the oil and meat sauces. Stir. Once the garlic begins to brown, add the stems into the pan to cook first (if any). A minute later add the leaves in and stir.
    This may take up your whole pan initially, but it will shrink down very fast.
  • Lower the temperature to medium heat and stir until the leaves have shriveled up and all the meat juices have been soaked up.
    All of the minced pork tofu juices is coating this stir fry. The water is coming out, cleaning the pan, and evaporating.


  • I personally love broccoli in this dish. The unique shape of broccoli means all the juices get stuck in the flower, making each bite really tasty. Since broccoli is harder, just cook it a bit longer so that it isn't raw.
