Stir fry Thread Vegetable


Not sure whether any of you recognize this vegetable (sorry for the blurriness). My parents have an organic garden and Mama gave me a huge bag of the “Threat Vegetable”. I assume it got it’s name due to the stalk being very threadlike after cooking.

2T olive oil
Thread Vegetable
pickled Chinese  lettuce heart
juice from the pickled lettuce heart (about 2 T)
1-2T dried shrimp
1 large clove of garlic, minced
1/2T chicken flavored seasoning

Heat up the oil in a wok, toss in garlic, stir fry until fragrant, toss in dried shrimp for 1-2 minutes, add the thread vegetable, pour in lettuce heart juice, cover the wok and let it wilt for 2 minutes, stir in pickled lettuce heart, stir until all leaves are wilted. Serve over rice!
