Recipe: Stewed Spinach Greens

Serves 2-4

I love this easy, no-nonsense, super healthy side dish from Botswana.  Simply steam spinach in its own juices until all the vegetables are soft. If you’d like to leave the tomatoes a little firmer, add them half way through cooking.


1 lb baby spinach
1 large onion, sliced thinly
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 green pepper, sliced thinly


1. Add all ingredients to  a large skillet or wok. Cover and heat over medium-low, stirring occasionally. Cook for about 30 minutes, or until all vegetables are soft. Serve hot.

The thinner the onion, the quicker it will cook and become tender. Look how pretty – you can see the knife through the onion! :)

  1. I commonly surf all around the world wide web since I have the tendancy to understand as well very much (which is not often a fantastic concept since the majority of websites just copy from each and every other) but I have to say that yours contains some genuine substance! Many thanks for stopping the trend of just being one more copycat website!

  2. Sasha,
    I am searching for a way to eat only veggies for a few weeks….and this recipe looks like a tasty winner!
