Ingredients

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • Wash individual stems thoroughly. You can break bigger stems into smaller pieces.
  • Gather all the ingredients on the counter.
  • In the boiling water, add a pinch of salt, and then add purslane. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Remove the purslane to a plate.
  • In a skillet over medium heat, add oil.

Notes

  • You can also eat raw purslane, but I find 1-minute blanching makes it taste much better.
