How To Cook Spinach With Potatoes South Africa?


To make this delicious South African dish, you’ll need the following ingredients:

– 1 large onion, finely chopped
– 2 cloves of garlic, minced
– 500g potatoes, peeled and cubed
– 800g fresh spinach leaves
– Olive oil for frying
– Salt and pepper to taste


1. Start by heating a tablespoon of olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and fry until golden brown.

2. Next add the potatoes to the pan with another tablespoon of olive oil. Fry on low heat for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally so they don’t stick to the bottom of your pan.

3. Now add your spinach leaves to the pot along with some salt and pepper to taste (optional). Cook for 5 more minutes or until all vegetables are softened but still retain their shape nicely.

4. Serve hot as a side dish or top with fried eggs for a hearty breakfast! Enjoy!

Why You Should Try This Recipe?

This is an easy yet tasty way to enjoy vegetables like spinach even if you’re not a fan of them usually – just mix them up with some potatoes!
