“Spinach is green
Spinach is mean,
Spinach doesn’t think twice
Before staining your teeth!”

1 cup boiled Udon noodles
2 cups fresh spinach, washed and cut (or you can use baby spinach salad leaves)
1 clove of garlic
1 small tomato, chopped
1/4 onion, diced
1 red chilli, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh green peas
1/2 cup red pepper, diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
Put the spinach and garlic in a blended to make a smooth paste. Put some water if required so that the paste is not too thick.
Heat oil in a pan. Add the onions and cook till transparent. Add the tomatoes and chili and cook till the tomatoes are tender. Stir in the spinach paste, add 2-3 tablespoons of water, salt & pepper. Cover and cook on medium flame till the spinach has lost its 'raw' flavor. Now add in the Udon, peas and peppers. Cover and cook for a few minutes. Turn the flame to high and stir continuously to dry and remaining liquid.
Remove from heat and serve immediately.
