One recent day while strolling through our local wet market we spotted a box of fresh tender looking green vegetables spotted throughout with the most beautiful tiny white flowers. What the heck were these? Never seen anything like these before. We found out that these lovely tender greens were the leaves of chili pepper plant. What, we exclaimed, you can eat chili pepper leaves?! The grumpy old vegetable vendor declared with a harumph and a sideways look that it was so. Well, what to do but to buy a big old bunch of the fresh tender greens and take it home to do a simple and classic Chinese stir fry with garlic. Well it turns out that not only can you eat these tender leaves but Chili Leaves Stir Fry with Garlic 蒜蓉炒辣椒葉 is a simply yummilicious vegetable dish!
