Once you’ve mastered the art of stir-frying – cooking enough so that vegetables aren’t raw, but not too much so that they lose their crunch – you can use the technique on lots and lots of different sorts of leafy greens, and experiment with your flavours. This recipe is a good start. If you don’t have all the leafy greens listed below, simply substitute with any Asian greens from your garden.
