Garlic and soy greens

Breakfast: Toast and home-made jam with a rad cup of tea

Lunch: Kasha with garlic and soy greens

Dinner: Sushi, sushi and lots more sushi

I first had this when the lovely Hana made it as an accompaniment for a much-needed lunch up at the Perak Permaculture farm in Malaysia. Putin also made it last week, and I remembered how much I loved it.

This is a great side for any meal, and the simplicity of the flavours can spice up an otherwise bland dinner. It's a 5 minute process too. Who could say no?

You'll need:
(feeds 2 as a side)
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
2 cups broccoli, chopped
1 cup snowpeas, ripped
2 cups spinach, ripped
soy sauce
1 clove garlic
A little oil

Heat the oil in a wok on medium-high
Throw in the garlic and the broccoli
Stir fry for 3 minutes then add in the mushrooms and snow peas and a few splashes of soy sauce. There should be enough soy to pool slightly in the bottom of the wok
Stir fry for 2 minutes then add the spinach
Stir fry for 1 more minute and serve

This is unbelievably delicious for such a simple process. As the spinach is very briefly cooked, it retains the majority of its nutrients, and everything else is only cooked for slightly longer. If you don't care to steam your veggies, this might be the next healthiest way to cook them.
