In a small bowl combine the rice wine vinegar, brown sugar and the fish sauce or soy sauce. Set aside.

Heat the oil over high heat in a wok or large sauté pan. Stir-fry the garlic, ginger, onion and shiitake mushrooms for 1 minute. Add the chile and red bell pepper and cook for 1 minute more.

Stir in the greens and, if needed, add a splash of water or white wine to moisten the pan. Cook the greens until they are bright jade in color and just tender, about 2 minutes. (At this point, the degree of tenderness depends on your taste. If you prefer your greens a little more well done, cover the pan and let them cook for 3 to 5 minutes more or until they reach your desired texture.) With the pan still on high heat, add the fish sauce mixture, basil leaves and cashews.

Heat through and serve over steamed jasmine rice.
