Quick & Easy Festive Greens

If your veg patch is brimming with tatsoi, pak choi, kale, spinach and chard, then this is a fantastic way to spruce them up in the kitchen. It is very simple, and will work with pretty much any greens that you have to hand.

Ingredients (Serves 4-6)

  • Any combination of the following (enough to fill a large, deep frying pan)
    • Spinach/Chard
    • Kale
    • Sprouts
    • Tatsoi or Pak Choi leaves
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1cm piece fresh root ginger, grated (ginger is super easy to grate from frozen – that’s our top tip!)
  • Juice of quarter an orange or lemon
  • Sea salt
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tsp honey (optional)


  1. Wash your greens well and roughly chop (remove tough kale stalks etc)
  2. On a medium high heat, warm the olive oil in a large frying pan or wok
  3. Add the garlic and ginger and fry for 1 minute
  4. Add all your greens and stir fry for 3-4 minutes until just cooked through
  5. Remove from the heat, mix in the orange/lemon juice and season well with salt and pepper.
  6. Add the honey if using, and stir in
  7. Finish with a grating of orange/lemon zest and a sprinkle of toasted nuts if you fancy them
