Sauteed Dou Miao with Garlic

Prep time: 15 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (peanut oil is good; canola is healthier)
  • 6-8 large garlic cloves, crushed and peeled
  • 1 pound dou miao, preferably large
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Heat the wok to a good, hot wok temperature; the highest setting on your stovetop, or like I do, over the grill outside. (The burner from a turkey fryer is great for this).

Put the vegetable oil in the wok and get it hot. You can use about half the oil here if you want. Add the garlic and toss until fragrant. This will take less than 30 seconds, probably.

Add dou miao and salt in batches; let dou miao wilt slightly before adding more.

As moisture from the leaves evaporates, add water if necessary. (I haven't found it necessary to do so yet).

Note: Finding nutritional info on this is hard, in part because I'm not sure what kind of pea sprouts these are; I think they're probably snow pea sprouts, which are 40 calories and 3g/fiber per cup.


This is a very quick, excellent addition when stir frying something else! Dou Miao is healthy and delicious! 2.5 WW points per serving (1 point if only 1/8 cup oil is used).
