  • Wash leek very well and chop it coarsely. Peel carrot and grate it also coarsely. Wash broccoli and cut it in small florets
  • Heat the oil preferably in a Teflon coated large saucepan that has a lid. Add the chopped vegetables when the oil is warm but not hot or smoking.
  • Add hot water from the kettle if it feels that your vegetables start sticking or feel to dry
  • Add your fish or vegetable stock and your soy sauce. Cover with lid and leave to simmer for approx. 10-15mins until vegetables are soft but not overcooked, “al dente”.
  • Heat the water in a large saucepan (at least 5dl of water) and add the pasta in when the water is boiling
  • Boil the pasta depending on cooking instructions until “al dente”. Drain and add to the vegetables when cooked.
