Love how Thai morning glory, aka water spinach, is so easy to make and so full of umami flavor from Thai yellow bean paste plus a spicy zing from Thai chili peppers! Easy week night veggies don’t get better than this! | thai-foodie.com


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of morning glory, aka water spinach, cut into 2-inch lengths, about 6 cups
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 23 Thai chili peppers, depending on spice preference, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1.5 tsp Thai yellow soybean sauce
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup water or chicken broth

Instructions

  1. Mix the oyster sauce, yellow bean sauce, fish sauce and sugar in a bowl. It’s important to have all the sauces pre-mixed, so you can put them all in at once since stir-frying the morning glory is super fast.
  2. Warm a few tablespoons of cooking oil in a wok over high heat.
  3. Once it’s smoking, add garlic to the wok and remove the wok from the burner to make sure the garlic doesn’t burn, and stir-fry the garlic.
  4. Once the garlic is toasted and fragrant, after less than a minute, place it back on the burner.
  5. Add the morning glory, chili pepper and sauces you’ve pre-mixed to the hot pan all at once.
  6. Quickly stir-fry constantly until water spinach shrinks down, should only take a minute or so, adding water or broth if it looks dry, until the leaves are wilted and the stems are crispy tender.
  7. Turn off the heat and serve alongside other amazing Thai dishes and jasmine rice.
