Spinach & Onions

I am sharing a recipe for spinach today & i think this will be my last simple vegetable dish for a while. I am working on a few interesting recipes and as soon as i mastered them & most importantly taken pictures of them i will be sharing them with you. I am challenged on a daily basis as to what to prepare for supper, my son who is vegetarian & he does not like vegetables & now he feels that lentils and beans are affecting his stomach. I am sure i have all you guys sympathies, & hopefully some inspiring ideas for me to prepare our daily supper.


 Spinach & Onions

 750ml tightly packed baby spinach chopped

200ml finely chopped onions

2-3 dry chillies (broken into pieces)

2 clove garlic finely chopped

5ml black mustard seeds

5ml salt

10ml cooking oil



  1.  Heat oil in a frying pan, add the onion and fry till translucent, then add the garlic, dry chillies and mustard seeds
  2. Add the spinach and turn the heat of, leaving the leave the pan on the stove
  3. Once the spinach has wilted and all of the liquid evaporated season with salt
  4. Serve hot with roti, or any which way you would like to

    I love the simplicity of this dish. My son is just the opposite – he only eats meat and won’t touch veggies or beans!
