Spring greens with garlic and soy sauce

Side Serves 4 10 min
Spring greens are tender, full of flavour and packed with vitamins – they almost taste of new life. This is a good, simple way to enjoy the best of their robust texture and zestiness. You may be tempted to add chilli, ginger or lemon, but try this first without.


  • 2-4 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, lightly crushed with back of knife
  • 2 small bunches spring greens, sliced crossways into 1cm strips
  • soy sauce


Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 5 min
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil over a high heat in a wok or a large, heavy-bottomed frying pan. Cook the garlic in the oil for about 20 seconds, adding the greens before the garlic browns.
  • Step 2

    Cook for about 2 minutes, turning the greens constantly in the oil. Add 2 or 3 shakes of soy sauce, cook for a further 15 seconds and serve immediately.
