Stir-fried Morning Glory or Pad Pak Boon Fai Daeng is also known as water spinach.
It was my breakfast this morning with steamed rice and is a very popular vegetable dish in Thailand.
This is a very quick dish to cook once you have all your ingredients prepared, 5 mins at the most.
1 bunch of Morning Glory
4-6 cloves of garlic
3 or more Thai Chillies
2 tbsp of Oyster Sauce
1 tbsp of Thai Fish Sauce
1 tbsp of fermented soybean paste or oil with soya beans
1 tsp sugar
1/2 to 1 tbsp of oil
1/4 cup fresh veg or pork stock
Wash and cut your morning glory into 4-6 inch pieces.
Bash the chilies and garlic in a pestle and mortar
Heat the oil in a pan until very hot.
Add the garlic and chilies and stir-fry (stirring) for 15-20 seconds be careful not to let garlic burn.
Add morning glory and all other ingredients except for the vegetable stock.
Stir-fry for 40 seconds and add vegetable stock and stir-fry for another 10 seconds.
Serve with steamed rice.
