Pea Sprout


Pea Sprout
Tau Cheong aka Salted/fermented soya bean


Sautee garlic in olive oil till a little brownish.  Add one large tablespoon of tau cheong also known as salted or fermented soya bean.

(I still get my supply from Sitiawan as you can’t get this version of tau cheong fermented with ginger and chili anywhere in Kayeel or Peejay.  They are so good you can even eat them with porridge too.  Altho they have chilis in there, they doesn’t taste spicy at all.)

Give them a quick stir and put in the pea sprout.  Another few stir fried and add in some water.  Bring them to a boil but don’t over cook your vege.

    is this call ‘dao miu’ in cantonese?

    The Queen says:  Yup.  But take note that there is 2 type of dao mui.  The one above is thicker and more delicious.  Of course more expensive also.  Another type would be thinner which i don’t like.

    wahh..i didn’t know can fry like that, usually i go for ching chau

    The Queen says:  I took after my mom’s cooking style so this is more like Hockkien style.  Usually cantonese people like ching chau.

    That looks like something even I can do too! Wheee… but where on earth am I gonna find Tau Cheong?!! Nevermind, substitute with Bacon Bits can ah?

    The Queen says:  Can!   Sometimes I will microwave some lap cheong bits for garnishing. You will have to substitute the tau cheong with oyster sauce.
