Sesame spring greens

Side Serves 4 15 min
Full of vitamins and folic acid, spring greens are the welcome herald of a change of season. The easiest way to shred them is to make a pile of leaves with the tough stalks removed, roll them up together lengthways, then chop. This quick, punchy vegetarian recipe also works really well with purple sprouting broccoli or cabbage.
