Pan Fried Garlic Noodle with Asian Greens

The stir fry is brilliant, they're quick and great as leftovers for lunches all week. Until I made my own from this week's CSA box I avoided vegetable medleys. So often they are overcooked and overcomplicated. I like carrots with carrots, greens with greens... but everything goes well with garlic noodles. Here's a recipe to try. Adapt it to your preferences. It's an excellent way to eat from the fields. We may make stir fry into a weekly theme night. The kids love to try chopsticks. We like to try the Sake.

Pan Fried Garlic Noodle with Asian Greens


4 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Oil
4-6 Cloves of Chopped garlic
1 package of noode (Buckwheat, Soba, or Kelp work well)
1 tsp fish sauce
1 Tbsp Soy sauce
1 head of Bok Choy cut 1/4 in thick diagonally
1/2 head green cabbage shaved into strips
1 bunch cleaned young turnip greens (aren't you glad you didn't throw them out)
Toasted Sesame seeds to sprinkle on top
Few shakes of garlic salt to taste

Start with pre-cooked noodles. Have them ready and set aside.
Heat the toasted sesame oil in a wok or large cast iron skillet over medium high heat until it begins to sizzle. Turn heat down to medium and fry the garlic until light toasted brown color. Immediately add noodles, fish sauce, soy sauce and cook until heated and combined. Add bok choy, cabbage, and turnip greens (or some alternative) in that order. Cook for 2 minutes. Sprinkle with garlic salt to taste. Remove from heat and garnish generously with sesame seeds.

There is plenty of gozo at Rio Gozo Farm. That is JOY in Spanish and joy is one of the most dependable products we have. Gozo is commonly found in gardens and farms. Once you get a little gozo up and going it is very tolerant of most pests, withstands dry periods, and grows with a modicum of fertilizer. After gozo becomes a staple of one's diet, it goes with about anything. Actually folks crave it so much it is a wonder everyone does not have a patch of it growing close at hand. Grab up some gozo and get with the flow.
