Komatsuna is a typical Japanese leafy vegetable. It is often called Japanese Mustard Spinach. Young leaves, stalks and flower shoots are used in salad and stir-fry. For this recipe you can use any seasonal green, like spring greens or spinach.
Toast the pine nuts over high heat, in a dry pan. Fry the garlic and shallot in olive oil, until softened. Add the komatsuna leaves and a splash of water. Cook until tender. Stir in basil leaves until just wilted. Serve and enjoy.
