Yield: 2 servings

Theme: ,


  • 7 ounces (200 grams) Tatsoi
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • .25 ounces (7 grams, 1 large clove) garlic, sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


  1. Separate the individual leaves and discard any tough parts of the core, slicing up the rest of the stem. Wash thoroughly and run through a salad spinner to dry.
  2. Add the sesame oil and sliced garlic to a frying pan and fry over medium-high heat until fragrant (but not browned).
  3. Add the tatsoi and stir-fry until the leaves are wilted. It will help reduce the volume of leaves if you use a spatula to press down on them until they wilt.
  4. Add the oyster sauce and stir fry until the stems have cooked through and there is no liquid left in the pan.
  5. Serve immediately, sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds.
