Author's Notes

Be sure to keep the cooking time really short so the Chinese water spinach will stay crunchy and fresh green in color.

It's best to use a wok to stir-fry the greens, as the wok is deep enough to hold the vegetables when cooking. And avoid overcrowding the wok.

The secret to good stir frying is not to put too much in the wok at one time. Otherwise, the vegetables will sweat instead of frying.

It's important to make sure the vegetables are very dry. Otherwise, the green leafy vegetables will steam and braise in the wok and lose their crisp texture.

This recipe can be substituted with other leafy vegetables.
