Default Recipe #2: Basic Stir-Fry, or, "Everything Tastes Better With White Pepper"

I got home yesterday and was appalled at the lack of vegetable dishes my parents were preparing... and found NO salad ingredients... so I made this today out of the two remaining veggies in our fridge just to survive dinner (haha) and I think I've won a convert in my nine-year-old little brother! Yay

Stir-fry Onion and Chives

- 1 large bundle green chives (about a pound)
- 1 large sweet onion, I used a white onion but red should work
- Canola (or other light) oil
- Water (haha)
- Salt
- Ground white pepper! (Ours was from a Chinese grocery) -- or black pepper is theoretically acceptable too...
- Optional: small handful diced fresh parsley, small handful diced green onion (leaf), garlic powder, chicken bullion (powder)

Directions: (About 15 minutes)
- Wash/clean both chives and onion, slice/dice into 1 -inch to 1 1/2 inch lengths.
- Heat 2 tsps of canola oil in a wok turned to high
- Toss in onion for about 30 seconds, then add chives -- add salt immediately
- when they seem lightly browned (another 30 seconds) add about 1/3 to 1/2 cup water to cover the bottom of the pan, turn fire to low
- Add bullion, any more salt, and ground white pepper, tasting constantly
- Add finely chopped parsely or green onion at the end.

The zesty tang of chives played against the sweetness of cooked onion nicely, but let's be honest: this dish is nothing without the AMAZINGNESS of white pepper. So excited about this!

... It is never too late to be what you might have been.

WOW, that sounds absolutely heavenly! I bet it's great with chicken breast and the clean flavor of goat cheese... I will ABSOLUTELY be trying this!
