Awesome Iron rich recipe to help on your way to boost your iron levels.

200g bag of spinach, washed

1 litre of water

1/2 red onion, chopped

2 tomatoes, chopped

1/2 tsp curry powder

1/2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp ground crayfish (optional)

1/2 tsp chilli powder (optional)

Pinch of salt

2 tbsp grapeseed oil

Boil the water in a sauce pan, remove from heat. Add the spinach to the boiling water and blanch for about 30 seconds or until slightly wilted, set aside.

Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onions and sautée for about a minute. Add the tomatoes, chilli powder, salt, curry powder, crayfish and turmeric, and cook for 3 minutes (adding the crayfish gives this recipe an exotic African twist). Add the spinach into the mixture, mix properly and cook for about a minute. Serve with either grilled fish or chicken. Yum yum. You can get the crayfish from most African stores and in some supermarkets but remember, it’s optional!

Peace and Fabulous Health!
