Sauteed Totsoi

In this simple recipe, cook the totsoi as you would spinach, in a little oil until just wilted. Sesame oil and hot pepper flakes complement this green nicely.

  • 6 cups totsoi
  • 2 teaspoons oil, canola and sesame — divided
  • red pepper flakes
Thoroughly wash and dry totsoi. Use a salad spinner to speed the process.

Put 1 teaspoon of canola oil to a large pan and heat. When hot, add the totsoi, quickly tossing with tongs so all of it fits in the pan. After a few minutes, the totsoi is wilted.

Put it in a serving dish and toss with the teaspoon of sesame oil and sprinkle with hot pepper flakes

Did you know?

When Columbus first arrived in the Americas, there were close to 300 varieties of corn being grown on the continent. Today, only 16 varieties of corn account for over 70% of the corn being grown in the United States. With the advent of genetically engineered corn, we are in danger of losing all genetic diversity, leaving the nations corn crop open to widespread destruction by a single fungus or disease.

Quotes

"There seem to be but three ways for a nation to acquire wealth. The first is by war, as the Romans did, in plundering their neighbors. This is robbery. The second by commerce, which is generally cheating. The third is by agriculture, the only honest way, wherein man receives a real increase of the seed thrown into the ground, in a kind of continual miracle, wrought by the hand of God in his favor, as reward for his innocent life and his virtuous industry."
