- 3 lbs Chinese broccoli

- 2 tablespoon avocado oil
- 2 teaspoon grated garlic cloves
- 1⁄2 teaspoon coarse sea salt(divided)
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
Cut off the bottom of Chinese broccoli bottom stems (about 1-inch) and discard. Make another cut to separate stems from leafy parts. Slice the stems on diagonal to roughly 2 to 2-½ inch length. Cut the leafy parts in half. Wash and rinse the stems and leafy parts separately. Set them aside to drain in separate bowls.
In a well heated large skillet (or wok), add 2 tbsp cooking oil. Statue the stems over medium-high heat until they turn bright green color (about 2 minutes). Season with ¼ tsp coarse salt. Add grated garlic and use a wooden spoon to break and coat the garlic over the vegetables.
Add leafy parts. Quickly toss and scoop the stems and garlic over the leaves. Cover with a lid. Lower the heat to medium. Cook for about 3 minutes until the leaves turn dark green color. Season with ¼ tsp coarse salt. Give a quick toss. Off heat, transfer to a large plate.
Season with toasted sesame oil and coconut aminos. Serve hot or cold.
