3 spring onions

1 clove garlic
1 tsp cumin seeds
1&1/2 tbsp of ex virgin olive oil
2 cups greens i used spinach and Kale
1 cup of baby plum tomatoes
Black Pepper to taste
1 average size sweet potato – the purple one is best for this recipe.
What to do:-
Peel and cube the sweet potato. Par boil the cubes in boiling water drain and put to one side.
Wash and prepare the greens the – chop them as you desire – finely works best- set aside
In a deep frying pan or wok
Heat the oil and add the chopped spring onions, cumin seeds garlic and chilli!! Fry until aromatic- beware the chilli aroma can be over powering to begin with! Add the sweet potato cubes and fry until they are crispy
Then add the tomatoes and cook for a further minute or so! Add the greens and season with black pepper to your taste! You can add salt if you like! Continue to cook until the greens are as you like!!
Voila – serve with protein of your choice!!
