60-Second Stir Fry: Dora Hinds and David Vigil

Thursday, October 11, 2012


Dora Hinds of East New York Farms recommends stir-frying Malabar spinach in the braising liquid of a roast, 15 minutes before taking the meat out of the oven, so I knew she was not going to wilt under the pressures of my 60-Second Stir Fry.

Hinds grows Malabar spinach and other goodies in her big, sunny backyard. She brings extras to the "share table" at East New York Farms, where farm manager David Vigil has planted Malabar spinach, hot peppers and other veggie staples of the Caribbean.
