Tips from Naz

  • You can replace the spinach with kale, but you will need to cook the kale 6 mins, and drain.

  • You can also create another dish called ataklt in a similar way. Simply replace the spinach with cabbage and add  small diced carrot.


  • 200g spinach

  • 100g new potatoes

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1 tsp of garlic

  • 1 tsp of ginger

  • 1/2 tsp of turmeric

  • Salt, to taste


  1. Wash the spinach and cut into small pieces put aside separately (if you have baby spinach, no need to cut). Add the spinach bit by bit until they’re all wilted and cook for 3-5 minutes.

  2. Remove the spinach, drain by and reserve the spinach water.

  3. In a pan, add the oil. Cook the ginger and garlic for 1 minute.

  4. Cut the potatoes into medium size cubes and cook with the reserved spinach water,
