    1. Fill a steamer with water to just below the basket. Bring the water to the boil.
    2. Cut the broccoli into small florets, trimming the stalks to about 1 cm (½ in). Peel the remaining stalk and cut it into1 cm (½ in) diagonal slices. Split the pak choi lengthways. Trim the spring onions and cut them into thin diagonal slices.
    3. Put all the vegetables into a bowl, add the garlic and ginger and toss well. Transfer them to the steamer basket, cover and steam for 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are tender but still slightly crunchy.
    4. Add the sugar to the fish sauce, stirring until it dissolves. Arrange the vegetables in a serving dish, pour the dressing over them and serve hot. Alternatively, leave them to cool, then chill until about 10 minutes before serving.
