  • 1 pound assorted vegetables e.g., spinach, kale, bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger

Instructions
 

  • In a large pot, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat.
  • Add the chopped onions and minced garlic to the pot. Sauté until the onions become translucent.
