Spinach with Wolfberries

My wife cooked this after having it at a local “mixed rice” stall and it’s quite nice, I must say. It is simple and nutritious especially with the wolfberries (aka kei chee / goji) around. Moreover, cooking took us less than 2 minutes. The preparation time, which is essentially, washing and rinsing of the vegetables took longer. Do ensure that you rinse the vegetable well as it is known to have lots of sand around the stems and leaves.

This is my wife’s recipe for Stir-Fried Spinach with Wolfberries


  • 400 grammes of spinach (washed and rinsed thoroughly, plucked at the stems and leaves)
  • 10 grammes of wolfberries (approximately 20 to 30 pieces)
  • 3 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon palm oil


  • 2 teaspoons of light soya sauce
  • salt to taste


Heat wok till smoky. Add oil and garlic and stir-fry garlic till beginning to brown.

Add spinach, wolfberries and seasoning. If you feel like it, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water. Stir-fry till spinach is limp.

Dish out and serve.

    Thanks Ryeurn! It’s a LOT of work. You better get your domain and host before you accumulate too many posts to cut and paste into the new one.
