Really quick and easy but very vibrantly flavoured – what more can you ask for in a dish!

Garlicky Spinach just involves throwing in an assortment of flavourful ingredients ranging from chopped garlic and green chillies to soy sauce and red chillies together with the spinach, and sautéing for just a few minutes, to get a richly flavoured and brightly coloured spinach dish. Enjoy it hot and fresh before the spinach leaves get limp and soggy.

Garlicky Spinach makes a good side dish with Chinese meals.
