Spinach With Fried Garlic

Spinach with Fried Garlic
Here's one recipe that I adapted from Ken Hom's Hot Wok that I use when I have excess spinach from the usual sinigang. The other stir-fry spinach recipe that I blogged here also have garlic although it's not as fried crisp as these. I love the crunch of the garlic in contrast with the soft spinach besides the utter simplicity of the cooking and the ingredients themselves.

Spinach with Fried Garlic

750 g  fresh spinach - washed and drained well
1 1/2 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp thinly sliced garlic
1 tsp sea salt
pinch of sugar
  1. Heat oil gently in a wok. Add in the salt and garlic. Fry on low heat until garlic is golden and crisp.
  2. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  3. Heat the oil again this time on high heat until it is smoking.
  4. Tip in the spinach and stir-fry for about 2 minutes.
  5. Add a pinch of sugar. Stir-fry for a further 3-4 minutes or until spinach is wilted.
  6. Remove and dish up. Scatter fried garlic on top. Serve immediately.
