Variations

  • Use 250g cooked green beans instead of spinach.
  • Replace canned lentils with 1 1/2 cups cooked lentils. Always rinse lentils and pick out stones before cooking. Cook according to packet instructions. Be careful not to overcook as they will go mushy.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with roast pork loin or chicken.
