Diane is one of our food ambassadors. She is from Ghana and she shared this recipe for Ghanaian spinach stew with us recently. As a child this was her favourite dish.
Here’s the story of how she learnt to make it.
“I actually learnt it from my granmum who I called “MaMa.” When I went to her for holidays as a very fussy toddler I wouldn’t eat anything she made so one day she took me to her farm and I picked the spinach and we sang and danced like the leaves came home and she prepared it and served it with green boiled plantains and I eat so much according to her I threw up and the rest is history.”
NB: Diane has adapted this recipe for Healthy Living Platform. The original recipe contains palm oil and smoked shrimp.
200g fresh spinach, chopped (or 8 cubes of frozen spinach)
1 vegetable stock cube
3 fresh tomatoes or 1 tin of tomatoes
1 small onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dry ginger
1 tablespoon sunflower oil
