What a week it has been. Work never seems to end and I am stretched to the maximum. Sometimes I wish there was more than 24 hours for a day. Well I still have another day of work tomorrow and let's see how much of rest I can get after this. I came back home worn out and all I can think of was a quick fix meal. The nearest option was a bowl of hot soup and a little serving of rice to go with it.
I managed to pick up a bunch of spinach on the way and next was staring into the fridge, trying to look for addition ingredients for the soup. My fridge is always stocked up with some of the essential ingredients and these came handy for the soup I had in mind. As the rice was cooking, I moved with preparing the ingredients and everything fell in place. Within less than 1/2 hour, my meal was up and what can be next but to replenish my energy level with the meal I made, really needed after a hard day's work.
1 bunch (about 400g) spinach - remove roots, wash thoroughly and sliced thinly
1 (about 200g) tomato - sliced thinly
5 garlic - chopped
1 onion - chopped
2 sprigs spring onions - sliced thinly
1/2 liter stock (any you prefer, I used vegetable stock)
2 tbsp oil
Salt and pepper for taste
When oil is heated, fry garlic and onion till soften.
Add tomato and continue stirring for another 1-2 mins.
Pour in the stock and let the soup simmer.
When heated through, season with salt and pepper.
Drop in spinach and off the heat.
Stir well and serve immediately, garnished with spring onions.
