Stir Fry Fu Gui Cai With Sea Salt And Garlic

I have heard so much of this China ' fu gui cai' on facebook and out of curiosity, I bought some back from Tesco during the CNY period.  It was a bit pricey but seeing that it is quite light in weight, I decided to spend some money on it so that I could taste the real thing instead of imagining how this veggie would taste like :p  

Some recommended stir fry with garlic and some stir fry with razor clams.  I prefer to stir fry with just salt and garlic and it turned out delicious.  It tasted like Bok Choy but the stem are more crunchy and sweet.  Love it !  It satisfied my curiosity and if not for the price, I would love to it to my daily diet  :)  Simple dish and I am easily satisfied :p

this is how fu gui cai looks like before cooking

after cooking it still looks crisps and fresh :)
just stir fry with garlic and sea salt
