    Default Potatoes Yianni

    I love these!

    Potatoes Yianni

    1 400g can or 6 to 8 large ripe tomatoes, chopped. If you use fresh, add 2 tbsps tomato puree.

    2lbs or so of potatoes (any floury variety will do) peeled & quartered

    Good handful chopped fresh spinach

    1 onion, chopped finely

    2 cloves garlic, crushed.

    1 tsp ground cinnamon

    1 tsp ground cardamon (optional, but tasty)

    Freshly chopped coriander parsley (flat or curly)

    Salt & pepper to taste.

    Olive oil.

    Soak peeled & quartered potatoes in cold water whilst preparing everything else.

    Saute onion in olive oil until soft. Add garlic, stir in potatoes. Cook for one minute, stirring constantly. Pour in canned tomatoes (or toms & puree) and add just enough water to cover potatoes.

    Add coriander (parsley) spinach and spices. Cover and simmer until potatoes are soft. If there is too much sauce halfway through cooking, increase heat and remove lid.

    When cooked, add salt & pepper to taste.

    This dish can be used as an accompaniment to a main dish, but it's lovely on it's own or with a greek salad.
