Steamed Greens With Toasted Almonds

Obviously you can use whatever greens or veggies you prefer here - the sauce and the toasted almonds make this a royal dish!! It's incredibly healthy and incredibly yummy - perfect for after the gym when you really don't want anything heavy. I often just eat this with nothing else - but if I'm more hungry, with dahl or naan bread. Also makes a great unusual veg dish for dinner parties.
