  1. In a dry wok or frying pan, toast the sesame seeds over a medium heat, stirring frequently until golden. Tip the sesame seeds onto a plate and set aside until needed.
  2. Return the pan to a medium-high heat and add the groundnut oil and garlic. Cook for 30 seconds, or until the garlic is just beginning to sizzle, then add the pak choi and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add the spinach with 1 tbsp water and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, until the spinach has just wilted; season. Drizzle with sesame oil and scatter the sesame seeds before serving.
