1 tablespoon chili powder, to taste
1-1/2 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
handful of spinach or kale, chopped
splash lime juice
pinch salt (optional)

What you do:

2. Top with favorite veggie stir fry or enjoy as is.

I liked this. I doubled the recipe and left out the spinach/kale. When it was done I put a little hot sauce on it and some sliced avocados! VERY good! Thanks.
