    Kailan is one of my favorite vegetables and this preparation is super easy to make at home. Substitute any other vegetable like pek cai or choy sum.

    1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Blanch the kailan for 3 to 4 minutes until crisp-tender. Do not overcook!
    2. Drain well and arrange on a serving platter. Drizzle with oyster sauce and sesame oil. Sprinkle with fried shallots and garlic. Serve immediately.

    Other ideas

    Steam the kailan in the microwave for 3 to 4 minutes. All microwaves are different so you'd have to experiment a couple times to get it just right.
