Simple Chinese-style Leek Stir-Fry

Simple Chinese-style Leek Stir-Fry

For a bit of flavour, just add some chicken soup stock granules! These Japanese leeks come in handy when you need a quick side dish. They also make a good snack. Eat them whilst they're hot.

Ingredients: a large amount

Japanese leeks
3 medium
Chicken soup stock granules
1 tablespoon
Sesame oil
1 teaspoon
If you're preparing only 1 leek, refer to Step 1.


1. This recipe can also be used for 1 leek. Simply use 1 teaspoon chicken soup stock granules and 1/3 teaspoon sesame oil instead.
2. Cut the leek into 3 cm pieces. Make sure to cut through the fibers at a right angle; if they are cut on the diagonal, they'll flatten after cooking.
3. Begin stir-frying the leeks, starting with the base of the stalk. Greasing the pan with sesame oil will produce a divine aroma! Just be careful not to add too much.
4. Add both the white and green parts and stir-fry until they begin to brown. Stop the heat and add the chicken soup stock granules. The granules will dissolve in residual heat.
5. Eat while piping hot. This method is far simpler than grilling. They are also delicious with chili pepper!
