1 ½ pounds broccolini, broccoli, bok choy, cauliflower, string beans, etc.
1 teaspoon virgin olive oil
2 ½ tablespoons rice wine, sake, or very good quality dry sherry
1 ½ tablespoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon sea salt
1.Trim away any tough leafy ends and peel away any tough skin from the stalk. Cut the stalk on the diagonal into 1 ½-inch lengths. Separate any flowerets. Rinse the vegetable thoroughly and drain
2.Bring 4 quarts water to a boil in a large pot and add the stalky, tougher part of the vegetable. Cook about 2 minutes or until near tender. Add the leafy sections or flowerets and cook for another minute. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold, running water. Drain. (You can do this in advance.)
3.Heat a wok or a deep skillet until very hot, then pour in the oil, and heat until near smoking. (Don’t be afraid to get the pan too really. This will give the dish its special flavor.) Add the greens, rice wine, garlic, salt, and toss lightly over high heat for about a minute. Scoop out the vegetable, arranging it on a serving platter, and spoon the liquid on top. Serve immediately or at room temperature.
