Serves 4 :: Ready in 15 minutes


– Oil

– 1cm piece root ginger

– 1 garlic clove, sliced

– 4 pak choi, trimmed and cut into halves or long wedges

Sesame Sauce

– 50g Sesame seeds

– 0.01 tbsp golden caster sugar

– 1 garlic clove. Crushed

– 3 tbsp soy sauce

– sesame oil


  1. For the sauce, toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying-pan until they colour and smell fragrant. Crush to a paste with the sugar, garlic and soy sauce in a pestle and mortar or spice grinder. Add enough sesame oil to make a pourable sauce.
  2. Heat a little oil in a wok and fry the ginger and garlic, add the pak choi and stir-fry quickly until the stems are just tender. Tip onto a plate and drizzle with the sauce.
