This is a super delicious, easy and quick dish that can be made with these or any other vegetables you have in your fridge. The key is the fantastic combination of ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar and the salsa macha. Salsa macha is at the end of the day, an oil-based chilli and peanuts sauce, similar in a way to other beautiful salsas from Asia where this dish takes inspiration from. This is just one more way to use it as a condiment instead of salsa on its own.
