This simple yet delicious stir fried vegetable side dish made with Pak Boong (ผักบุ้ง; Water Morning Glory; Water Spinach) is one of Thailand's most popular foods. We think it should be on every first-time visitor's "must eat" list, as it is difficult to find at restaurants in the west. Seasoned with soy bean paste, garlic, chilies, soy sauce, and oyster sauce, the salty-spicy-sour-and-crunchiness of Pad Pak Boong Fai Daeng is great as a side dish or all by itself.

Step 5

Heat the oil in a deep frying pan or wok until it's really hot, but not burning. Dump the bowl of ingredients up-side-down into the pan, so that the sauces are on the bottom. Quickly stir it up so it cooks evenly.

Step 6

It only takes a minute or so to cook, so be careful not to leave it on the heat too long. You'll know it's done when the the larger leaves are getting wilted, but the stalks are still very stiff.
