Sauteed Tat Soi

I have to say I wasn't too impressed with this dish. It tasted blah to me. Maybe I should have added more crushed red pepper flakes or garlic or salt. Even dh didn't like this but then I really don't think he's a fan of trying something new. The only one in the family who liked this was Nathan, which really says alot since he is the pickest of all the kids. I found this recipe on the web:
Serves 2 as a side dish
5 bundles of tat soi (there are three tat soi to a bundle)
1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
crushed red pepper flakes to taste
kosher salt to taste
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
2. Unwrap the bundles and place in a large bowl of cold water. This will allow the dirt to fall to the bottom.
3. Place the olive oil and garlic in a large nonstick saute pan. Turn heat to medium. When garlic begins to sizzle turn heat to low and let cook, watching closely so the garlic does not brown. After 2 to 3 minutes add the crushed pepper flakes and turn of heat.
4. When the water boils add tat soi. Let cook 10 to 30 seconds max. Drain and rinse with cold water.
5. Turn the heat under the frying pan to medium. when the garlic and pepper flakes begin to sizzle add the tat soi. Season with kosher salt to taste. Shake the pan or use tongs to coat the tat soi in the garlic oil mixture. Serve immediately.
