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

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