- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 large tomato, chopped
- 1 bundle Covo
- 2 tsp salt
- Pure vegetable oil for frying
This is one of our traditional ways of preparing leafy green vegetables here in Zimbabwe. It’s a quick and easy way to kill two birds with one stone for those days where one does not feel like cooking a separate pot of soup or where there’s a large crowd of people and you can’t exactly prepare soup for all of them. It’s basically convenience at its best. This is done for other vegetables too such as cabbage.
- With your onions (1 medium onion), tomatoes (1 large tomato) and vegetables (1 bundle) chopped, heat oil in pan. Add the onions and saute them for about a minute. Add the vegetables and salt (2 tsp).
- Stir and cook for about a minute. Add the tomatoes and stir. Cover pot, reduce heat and simmer for about 3 minutes and that’s it.
