Method:

1. In a small bowl, mix the miso paste, soy sauce and mirin with two tablespoons water until smooth.

2. Place a large non-stick wok over a high heat. When it is almost smoking, add the oils, garlic and ginger and stir-fry for 1–2 minutes, until the garlic is golden – don’t let it burn.

3. Add the broccoli and asparagus with one tablespoon water. Stir-fry for one minute, then toss in the mangetout and stir-fry for a further one minute. Add a splash more water if the pan looks like it’s drying out.

4. Add the cavolo nero, cabbage and miso mixture and stir-fry for one to two minutes or until the cabbage is cooked and wilted. Add the chard and cook for another minute, then remove the wok from the heat.

5. Place a medium non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Add a few sprays of oil, crack the eggs into the pan and cook for two to three minutes.

6. Divide the greens between warmed plates and top each portion with a fried egg. Sprinkle with furikake to serve.

BONUS: Filled to the brim with vitamins, antioxidants and minerals, greens are particularly rich in nutrients that help reduce muscle aches after exercising.
