 Ingredients List

  • 2 bn Fresh spinach
  • 2 tb Peanut oil
  • 1 sm Dried chili pepper
  • 1 ts Minced ginger root
  • 1/3 c Stock
  • 1 ts Thin soy sauce

If fresh spinach is unavailable in your area, experiment with thawed,
frozen spinach.

Preparation: Slice off root end and half stem of spinach; wash com-
pletely and drain leaves. Wash chili pepper. Incidentally, double amount
of dried chili if using plain fermented bean curd. Mash fer- mented bean
curd with thin soy; mix with stock and sugar.

Stir-frying: Heat wok to very hot; add oil. When oil just begins to
smoke, add 1/2 spinach, and toss until it begins to wilt. Push wilted
spinach up side of wok; add remaining spinach, and toss until it wilts.
Push all spinach out of bottom of wok; add chili and ginger; stir for about
10 seconds. Add liquid ingredients; stir; when liquids boils, thicken to
medium consistency with dribbles of cornstarch paste. Recombine with
spinach. Stir to coat spinach. Serve. Spinach should remain bright green
until you pour in liquid.
