  • Wash your Spinach and place in a bowl.

  • Add the chilli to to the Spinach

  • Boil 1 litre of water in a kettle Pour the hot water over the Spinach and chilli and stir for 30 seconds.

  • Using a colander drain the hot water off the Spinach and run it under cold water for 1 minute. (This stops the Spinach from cooking further and allows it to retain its green colour).

  • Transfer the Spinach, chilli, Ginger , 200ml of your preferred stock and Onion into a blender.

  • Blend into a silky smooth consistency and set aside. Place your diced Yam into a saucepan and cover with water.

  • Boil the Yam for 10-12 minutes or until soft and drain the water using a colander.

  • Melt the Coconut oil in the saucepan and the diced Yam.

  • Add the blended Spinach and cook for a further 2 minutes.

  • Serve with your preferred protein as I did with minced Lamb burger.
