- Peel the ginger, then chop it finely and crush the garlic cloves. Add these to a large frying pan with generous drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper.
- Let this heat up and sauté for a few minutes before adding in the tamari, finely chopped celery, frozen spinach and broccoli. Stir this around for a minute before adding the water and frozen peas to the pan. Add a generous pinch of salt and let this heat up for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
