An Easy Side Dish – Guylan (Recipe)

There are a lot of different vegetables out there. Some I have probably never even heard of and then there are others that all look the same. Leafy greens are supposed to contain lots of nutrients, so here’s an easy recipe for a green vegetable that you may not be familiar with – guylan which is also know as Chinese Broccoli.


  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • Bit salt
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • Bit of sugar
  • Bunch of guylan


  1. Wash and peel the bottoms of the guylan. Cut into one inch pieces.
  2. Add to pot of boiling water and cook until the stems are slightly soft and strain. You may want to add the leaves a bit later as they trnd to cookf faster.
  3. In a small sauce pan, add the oyster sauce, salt, chicken broth, and sugar. Stir until mixed and dissolved.
  4. Plate the strained guylan and then pour the sauce on top.
