Recipe - Garlic Sprout Stir Fry With Bean Curd

Garlic sprouts or garlic shoots are flowering stems of garlic. They have a mild garlic flavour and like the garlic, are known to boost the immune system. They are sold in bunches of about 200 grams each in the market and supermarket. Garlic sprouts are versatile ingredients. They can be stir fried with seafood or meat to give a flavourful and hearty dish. In this recipe, the garlic sprouts are paired with bean curd in a stir fry.

5 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
