Trio-Egg Kau Kee Vegetables (金银蛋九杞菜)

Kau Kee (九杞) are leafy vegetables that have sharp thorns on their stalks, so we've to be very careful when handling them. The vegetables, which have a slight bitter taste, are commonly used in Chinese soups or simply stir-fry. At times, I would replace Kau Kee with Spinach, depending on what I can find in the market.

1 Salted Egg-yolk, ½ White
1 Century Egg
1 Chicken Egg

  11. Shirley, I'm glad you mentioned the spinach substitute! I know I won't find Kaw Kee at our small town grocery store, ha! The closest thing to it sounds like okra, maybe? But I prefer spinach anyway. :)

  19. I like this dish. The 3 diff eggs add diff flavours into this dish.

    Just curious, how long do you typically wash the vege for?

    1. I normally would soak my veg & change water twice unless the veg is really soiled like lettuce. Really depending how dirty the veg is :)
