Garlic Greens


This dish is simple and goes with just about anything its delicious with a fresh white fish fillet or chicken but tonight i’m doing it along side my beef with ginger and spring onions and rice (noodles for my little sister!)You can really use any vegetables you want, I’ve used dark greens, green beans, white cabbage, broccoli, asparagus, bok choi, you name it I’ve used it! its nice with some added carrot chunks too! Just so you all know the little (s) symbol i put by certain ingredients are for those who also follow slimming world so they know there are syns but will need to check them.

In total you need about 300g of any green veggies.(the onion is the base of the dish so you need it) this is just an example below that i love using.

1 large onion, halved and sliced into 3 cm slices.

1 head of broccoli (around 200g)

100g green beans

(sometimes i add mushrooms if im not serving with a meat dish and actually have it as a meal with rice)

sauce: (mixed together)

2 large garlic cloves (grated or 2 tsp garlic puree)

1 tbsp oyster sauce

2 tbsp soy sauce

1/2 tsp sesame oil (s)

1tsp cornflour (s)

1/4 tsp white pepper

  1. Par boil the broccoli and green beans for 3-5 minutes.Drain well and heat a frying pan until very hot, spray with low cal spray or add a little veggie oil.
  2. Add your onion and stir fry for 30 seconds then add the drained green beans, and broccoli.
  3. Add the sauce and stir fry for 3-4 minutes or until the sauce thickens.

I hope you try this recipe as this is honestly the way i got my little sister to eat more greens!

Love Emily
