5g fresh lemongrass, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic
100g kale, chopped

3/4 tsp ground cumin

100g spinach
Good pinch of Pink Himalayan or sea salt
Good pinch of cracked black pepper

how to make it…
Dry fry the mustards seeds in a non stick pan on a medium / low heat for 1 – 2 minutes to release the flavour. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Heat the oil in a pan. Add the onion and fry on a medium heat for 3 – 4 minutes until soft and golden. Add the ginger, lemongrass and garlic and fry for a further 30 seconds.

Add the kale and 3 tbsp of water and fry for about 2 minutes to soften. Pour in the coconut milk, spices, optional jalapenos, spinach and season to taste. Simmer for 5 minutes on a medium/ low heat until the sauce thickens.

Remove from the heat and serve with cauliflower rice or if you’re not keto/ paleo/ low carb, with lentils or rice.
