Top of the week guys, how wuna deh do? Hope all is well oooo. We are having sautéed green for today’s meatless Monday dish. Over the weekend I indulged quick a bit, celebrating my grandma’s one year passing with correct ‘Achu’ (recipe to follow in another post) so I wanted to ‘purify’ my inside from all that oyel :)! Then it hit me, green! of course, sautéed green!
Also known as African spinach or Efo tete in Nigeria, it is a dark leafy green that grows in most parts of West-Africa and it is packed with an appreciable amount of proteins, fat, fiber, carbohydrate and calorific value, mineral elements, vitamins, amino acids(1).
Grandma taught me that when cooking vegetables less is more. So for this sautéed green, I used tomatoes, onions, and crayfish and in as little as no time, my kitchen smelled heavenly! Make it vegetarian like me or add some dried fish or meat and enjoy it roasted fish and/or with steamed or baked sweet potatoes or dodo.
Happy and healthy cooking xoxo
