Sesame Gai Lan

  • 1 large bunch gai lan, tough ends removed, and cut into 1-2" long pieces (you eat the stalks as well as the leaves)
  • 5 tbsp virgin coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1" piece ginger, peeled and grated with a micro grater
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp honey
  • unprocessed salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Heat the oil over medium in a large fry pan or wok. Add the gai lan and cook, stirring often. When the leaves start to soften add the water. Keep cooking and stirring until the water cooks off and the stalks turn bright green. This will take about 10 minutes.

Add the garlic and ginger, stir to mix and let cook for a few minutes. Add the sesame oil and sesame seeds. Stir and let cook for a few more minutes. Add the honey, stir, taste and season with salt and pepper. Serve.
