Ever since my mom was diagnosed with hypertension, we’ve been making this dish whenever we find garlic leaves in the market. The leaves are very similar to spring onions and they are not as garlicky as the bulbs. They, however, bring a lot of flavor to any dish.
Glass Noodles with Shrimp and Garlic Leaves
- 1/2 lb glass noodles (ChapChae noodles) or vermicelli (sotanghon)

- When the oil is hot enough, sauté garlic and the remaining sliced onions.
