Last afternoon I had a pleasant time with The Cuz. She was in the midst of cooking and so I sauntered in asking if I could capture what she was doing (and hoping to get a taste of the wonderful vegetables I saw in the pan!) The vegetables were fragrant and crisp (who likes mushy overcooked vegetables? Unless of course they are meant to be pureed!) So here’s the technique for a healthy and satisfying dish.


add oil, garlic and then ginger to a pan. add cut broccoli and cauliflower. season with freshly ground black pepper.

in a separate bowl and some soy sauce, cut chillies, some alfalfa spriuts and the dry roasted cashews.
