 1 celery, diced
 1 green pepper, diced (remove the seeds & white stuff)
 3 garlic cloves(as per taste)
 1 cup chicken breast, diced not cooked preferably, omit if vegan
 ½ inch piece ginger, peeled and grated

 2 tbsp cayenne, add more if you want it hotter
 3 tbsp tomato paste, I love using hunts
