Stir-fried Endives in Hoisin Sauce

Actually I’ve never really liked endives and I think my mum knew so so she kinda stopped cooking it for me for a long long while such that I’ve actually forgotten how it tastes like. After cooking it today, I’ve come to the conclusion that I still don’t really like it. 😀 I mean, I’m quite a vegetable lover and if you do serve me endives, I’d still eat it; it’s just that I’m not particularly fond of it… hehe…

Usually my mum cooks it without hoisin sauce but I just bought a bottle of hoisin sauce today so I thought I’d just add a little to the veggies. 🙂
Stir-fried Endives in Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 bunch of organic endives (washed and plucked)
  • 1/2 handful of dried shrimps
  • 1tsp hoisin sauce
  • garlic (minced)
  1. Rinse then soak the dried shrimps in 1/3 bowl of water. Remove from water before cooking and retain the water that the dried shrimps were soaked in for cooking.
  2. Fry the garlic and dried shrimps till fragrant.
  3. Add the endives (stalks first, followed by leaves).
  4. Fry the endives for awhile then add in the hoisin sauce and the dried shrimp water and simmer till endives are cooked.
  5. Dish and serve.
Note: The quantity of cooked endives is really little compared to the uncooked ones so you may need more than 1 bunch of endives if you need more veggies! 🙂 Luckily I cooked watercress soup today so I could get some more veggies from that!
