Greens with Pumpkin Seeds
From: Eve -London, UK

This is a very quick South African meal for one. Nutritious and tasty too.

  • 2 tablespoons canola or olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 small bunch of spring onions
  • 1 small bunch of spinach or any cooking greens
  • 2 marrows or zucchini
  • A handful of crushed pumpkin seeds
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of black pepper

Roughly chop onion, spring onions, spinach and marrows.

First slightly fry onion, then mix in spring onions, spinach, marrows and crushed pumpkin seeds. Season with pinch of salt and black pepper. Leave to cook on very low heat, allowing natural vegie juices to cook the meal. Add a few tablespoons of water if necessary. Should be ready in under 10 minutes. Eat with new potatoes or wholemeal dumplings or stuff a pitta bread with it. Delicious.
