  •  1 large bunch pac choi
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil or vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed and finely chopped
  • 1 mild green chilli, seeded and finely chopped

  1. Cut a thick slice from the pac choi root to separate the leaves. Rinse and drain.

Reduce the heat and cook for 3-6 minutes, tossing occasionally, just until the leaves have wilted (the stalks should be tender-crisp).
