Stir-fried Chinese Spinach

Having a plate of vegetables on the dinner table makes a home-cooked meal taste both wholesome and healthy. This is one of the vegetable dishes I cooked frequently because my family really love Chinese spinach.

Sharp Spinach

For this dish, I use either Chinese sharp (pictured above) or round spinach (determined by the shape of the leaves) because their stems are delightfully soft and tender after cooking. I love this so much that I can have a plate of vegetables all to myself.

I often added crispy ikan bilis (dried anchovies) as they add an extra savoury kick to this dish. You may skip the ikan bilis if you wish, but you may need to use a bit more soy sauce since the salty ikan bilis naturally seasons the dish.

  1. I love dishes like this and kangkung is my one of my favorite veggies. A bit of kick from red pepper flakes or sliced chili padi will make me really happy :)

  2. Lovely, I love this kind of homey dish.

  3. I tried this last night – very nice. 很香很好吃. I havent post mine yet.

  4. GORGEOUS! Love the detail on your chopsticks too. :)

  5. I like home-cooked meals. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I cooked spinach with ikan bilis tonight. :) The ikan bills was a refreshing idea as I would always just stir fried spinach with garlic. My ikan bills were a little too salty, probably because I was a little too generous with them. :)

  6. Hi

    I kinda a fan of Chinese and simple cooking for every day meals. I’ve been trying some of your recipes and my family absolutely loves them. I saw this recipe and I immediately thought I want to try this, up till I saw the part on Chinese wine. I don’t consume alcohol( be it drinking or cooking) due to religious reason.

    My question is, is it ok to not use Chinese wine in this (and some) of the recipes? Will it change the taste drastically? I appreciate your reply so much. :)

    P.S. Love these recipes so much! :)

    • Hi Shariffa, thanks for your kind words. Glad you like Chinese food, currently I am learning how to make mee soto! hope I succeed. It is perfectly fine to omit the Chinese wine in the recipes. the wine plays a supporting, subtle role to enhance the flavour, but it will not destroy the taste at all. There are many ways to flavour Chinese stir-fries, such as ikan bilis powder, shallot oil, salt, garlic etc…

    • Thanks so much for the prompt reply Wiffy! At least there’s still hope for me to cook some of the simply amazing dish. :) I do have a recipe to my MIL’s Mee Soto and her super spicy sambal. I have yet to try cooking it though (quite tedious if you have 2 kids under 3!), I can guarantee that it’s really good coz I’ve eaten her soto countless times. I can share with the recipe. Or maybe you have a simpler yet delicious soto recipes, please do share! :)

      P.S Soto goes well with potato cutlet! :)

    • Yes, yes, I want your MIL’s recipe if it’s not too much trouble – I always believe home recipes is the best. can you email me via the contact page? But no hurry, I can wait, so take your time. I love mee soto and always crave for it :)
