1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon honey
1-2 Tablespoon coconut, peanut or vegetable oil

Heat wok or large frying pan to medium high heat add the coconut (or other) oil and the potatoes. Add the chili flake if using; Stir and cook till slightly browned and tender;  Add the chard and cook
2 min stirring constantly;  Add the lime and ginger zest, cook 1 more min and add remaining liquid ingredient;, stir to combine;  Turn off the heat, add the mint and cashew, toss and serve!
Great served over rice, quinoa or mixed into scrambled eggs or in an omelet.

Ginger tip: when buying fresh ginger we usually end up with more than the recipe calls for. Peel the ginger and put into a zip lock bag and store for 6 months in the freezer. Pull out and grate from frozen as needed!
