Its easy to cook great Chinese vegetables with ingredients in our online store
1.Cut vegetables first then wash and drain them and keep them aside. Its easy to take the veggies, sit down in front of the TV, relax and cut your beautiful vegetables. Many Asians do this.
2. Using frozen vegetables is easy and use Asian sauces to turn them into tasty gourmet meals.
3. In Asia, including China, vegetables (and especially green leafy vegetables) are washed after cutting and just before use.  It is believed that washing starts the softening process in veggies and the integrity of the vegetables must be preserved.  
4. Green leafy vegetables if washed too much in advance may rot and wilt so wash them just before use and pat dry.

5.  Chinese cooking also uses spices and seasonings like star anise, fennel seed, chilli, cilantro, mint and garlic and ginger. Also use soy sauce and Chinese vinegar to flavor veggies. If you are not vegetarian or vegan you can also use oyster sauce which makes vegetables have a rich, smooth taste.
The Soy curd and the soy sauce  - both Chinese inveentions have put Chinese cuisine on the vegetarian map. China's use of bean pastes, pickled vegetables and  mushrooms add depth to vegetables and vegetarian cuisine.

Cooking Vegetables the Chinese Way
1. Leafy vegetables are washed, then cut and used right away for stir frying.
2. Other greens may be washed and then parboiled till they turn bright green and the they are removed and plunged briefly into cold water to retain their color, then they are set aside, ready to be cooked with the other ingredients
2.  Vegetables like carrots, cabbage and brussel sprouts are parboiled and set aside
3. Fresh, crisp, brightly colored and well chilled vegetables tossed in sesame oils, soy and sweetner with chili sauce make great Chinese salads
4. It is a good idea not to have leftovers of chinese veggetables as
