Make it different
This basic recipe works well with most green vegetables. You could try blanching broccoli, asparagus or beans until just tender, then cooking as above.


  1. Heat the oil in a pan and cook the garlic for a few secs. Tip in the spinach and cook for 2 mins, stirring often until just beginning to wilt. Drizzle over the soy sauce, toss through and scatter with sesame seeds. Great served with chicken or grills.
