Quick, tasty, healthy, unfussy eating!

I tossed this little ditty together one time-pressed day after work and really enjoyed the flavoursome outcome of what are, essentially, very simple yet very comforting ingredients.

  • 1 red onion
  • 800g green peas
  • 3 handfuls baby spinach
  • 1/2 lemon
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Saute the red onion in olive oil over low-medium heat for about 3 - 5 mins till glossy but still al dente.
  2. Toss in the peas and saute on higher heat.
  3. Once the peas are al dente (about 2 mins), add the baby spinach and allow to wilt (takes about 1 minute).
  4. Drizzle with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  5. Enjoy!
