spinach and tomato in soup

As I recall
the only green leafy veggie I ate when I was a kid was spinach :)
my mom made a simple soup with it and I've loved it since
today I added a whole fresh tomato into the soup
it gets so much more tastier!

so simple to make and cooks in 5 mins!

lets get straight to the making..

wash 250g of spinach thoroughly to remove all sands and what have you

separate the leaves from its stem and cut up the stem into 2" length

soak 10 dried anchovies for 5 mins and remove its head and intestines

crush 1 garlic and chop it up finely and then thinly slice 1 shallots

on the stove heat a medium-sized pot over medium fire and pour in 1 Tbsp cooking oil

toss in the cleaned anchovies and fry till golden brown and aromatic

then toss in the shallots and garlic and saute till golden brown

add in 1/2 cup of water and bring it to a boil

meanwhile cut 1 fresh tomato into wedges and toss it into the boiling soup

add in 1 tsp of salt and cook the tomato for 2 mins 

toss in the spinach and cook for 2 mins or

until the spinach turns soft with a brilliant dark green color

taste for saltiness and off the fire

serve hot


simply wholesome goodness :)
