Celtuce, Garlic, and Black Beans, Hakka Style
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
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.
