Chinese Pea Stems with Garlic
Chinese pea stems

Chinese pea stems (dou miao) make a great green veggie side that differs nicely from the old standards like spinach. And it's just as easy. Check your local Asian mart to find them; their availability can depend on the season. They are most easily characterized by their hollow stems.

To cook, heat a good amount of chopped garlic in oil. Add hot Thai peppers if you'd like the dish spicy. Add the pea stems and quickly saute until wilted. Add salt to taste and a dash of sesame oil. Yum!
