Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

3 Tbsp
grapeseed oil
1 Tbsp
minced fresh garlic
1 1/2 tsp
finely chopped lemongrass (or same amount from a convenient tube found in the produce section of many grocery stores)
5 c
washed & dried chinese broccoli
1/2 c
coconut milk
salt & pepper to taste
crushed red pepper to taste

How to Make Garlicky Coconut Gai Lan Recipe

Step-by-Step

  • 1Coat the bottom of a medium-sized sauté pan with grape seed oil and place it over medium-low heat.
  • 2Add the garlic and lemongrass and sauté until it's very aromatic and has softened a bit, about 2 minutes.
  • 3Turn the heat to medium-high and add the Chinese broccoli. Cook, stirring from time to time, until it's completely wilted and the bottom of the pan is becoming dry, about 10 minutes.
  • 4Pour in the coconut milk, stir, and gently cook until it has almost completely absorbed into the Chinese broccoli, about 2 minutes.
  • 5Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes if desired.
