Stir-fried Pak Choi

This organic pak choi is so different from the puny stuff available in the supermarkets. This one probably weighed about half a kilo!

500g pak choi
a good thumb's length of fresh ginger, grated
2-3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
extra virgin olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
sea salt
soya sauce, optional
2tbsp toasted sesame seeds

1. Cut the pak choi into 1-2cm wide strips, wash and drain in a colander for a few minutes. Some of the water still clinging to the pak choi will help with the cooking process.

2. Heat the olive oil and add the pak choi, garlic and ginger. Stir-fry over a medium until the pak choi is starting to wilt. Season with pepper and salt and cover with a lid. Simmer for a few minutes until the pak choi is almost tender.

3. Remove the lid and increase the heat to dry off the liquid and lightly brown the the pak choi.

4. Add the sesame seeds and transfer into a serving dish.
