Project sawi bonanza 2: Sawi with cabbage stir-fry

You may have read in an earlier post that my neighbour, Mr Lee, recently gave me a big bunch of sawi (mustard greens), and that I've made it my mission to put it all to good use. Following my first recipe, sawi soup, I decided to stir fry the sawi with some cabbage that has been languishing in my fridge. A very simple and humble recipe, but a good way to get your daily veg. Here goes:

1 tablespoon dried shrimp (soaked in water and crushed)

2 tablespoons cooking oil

1. Heat oil and saute dried shrimp, onion and garlic until fragrant.
2. Add all the vegetables and stir fry until the leaves have wilted (but don't overcook!)
3. Add salt to taste.
4. Ready to serve with rice.

Note: Feel free to add shitake mushrooms, baby corn, snow peas etc for more colour and texture. You can also substitute the dried shrimp for a dash of oyster sauce.
