  • When the potatoes are fully cooked (i.e can easily be pierced with a fork), turn off the heat and mix in the spinach, coriander, spring onions and a squeeze of fresh lime juice, leave to sit for a minute then serve.

You can serve it on its own or with pretty much anything: plantain, rice, vegan bread or even with more vegetables. I chose to serve it with easy-cook long grain rice and it turned out very filling and bursting with flavor.
