HK Baby Kailan In Oyster Sauce & Crispy Garlic Slices

I will be adding more veggie and fish to my dinner menu after the Chinese New Year.  For 'our ' age ( Wild Boar & myself )  it is good to add more veggie and fish in our diet . I love greens and the chinese restaurants over here have come out with so many different style of cooking greens . Today's veggie dish is Hong Kong Baby Kailan in simple oyster sauce and garnish with crispy garlic slices . A simple yet flavorful veggie dish.

These  HK Baby Kailan are sweet and tender. Love their natural green even after blanching them in hot boiling water and it is best cooked simple so that you get to taste the natural flavor of the greens and you just have to cook a simple oyster sauce for it and garnish with lots of golden  crispy garlic slices.....yummilicious!

There are many ways to cook these way  is to cook them with yam....I would like try it out one day, for kailan with yam is one dish that restaurants are serving as one of their signature dish . A very popular dish among the chinese.  Meanwhile , you may like to have this veggie dish for your reunion dinner , that is , if you want something simple and easy to prepare and yet taste good.

Enjoy !

  1. Baby Kailan... hmmm I've never heard of that before. But it looks like chinese broccoli to me. Is Kailan the proper name for chinese broccoli?
    Either way this looks delicious and it's great that you're adding more veggies to your diet!

  2. I love kailan! But so difficult to find here! So I'm seriously drooling right now ;). Delicious! I love my veggies, especially the Asian types :D

  3. My fav meals always consist of fish and leafy greens! I'll def be giving this a try!

  10. Elin, this is my kinda dish, too. I actually fancy veggies more than I do for meat. LOL! This way of serving veggies is very Canto, too! LOL! Suits my Canto palate perfectly!

  11. These are lovely. I think one of my favourite sauces ais a well-used oyster sauce. It pairs so well with vegetables, especially greens like this baby kailan. It looks a tad similar to kale but I don't think i've ever come across it.

  12. My favourite veg~!!

    Wishing you and your family a Happy and Prosperous New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!
