Celtuce, Garlic, and Black Beans, Hakka Style

Vegetables and Vegetarian Foods

Celtuce, Garlic, and Black Beans, Hakka Style
Ingredients:
8 ounces celtuce tops or romaine lettuce
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
8 cloves garlic
1 Tablespoon fermented black beans, rinsed and coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon soy sauce, or to taste
Preparation:
1. Trim and discard the stem ends of the celtuce or lettuce, and separate the leaves cutting larger ones in half lengthwise and crosswise. Rinse and drain well.
2. Set a fourteen-inch wok or twelve-inch fry pan over high heat. When hot, add the oil and rotate the pan to spread it around. Then add the garlic and stir-fry it until it begins to brown. Next add the black beans and ginger; stir well, then add the greens and one tablespoon of water. Stir-fry just until the greens wilt slightly, about one minute. Stir in soy sauce, stir, then pour this mixture into a bowl and serve.
Note: Serves four or five as part of a multi-course meal.
