Chinese Stir-Fried Malabar Spinach (Tsuru-Murasaki)
I used to only prepare malabar spinach Japanese style, but it was always somewhat unappetizing. Then, when I added it to Chinese stir-fry, it turned it really good. So now, whenever we have malabar spinach, I always fix it this way.
Some say it's best to parboil the malabar spinach to mellow out the strong flavor, but since the nutrients are lost that way, I wanted to come up with a way to use them as is. The addition of maitake mushrooms helps to neutralize the raw green taste of the malabar spinach. For those who don't like the wild taste of greens, be sure to include maitake. For 2 to 3 servings.
