  • 600 g Potatoes chopped into 2cm cubes
  • 200 g Spring Greens loosely chopped into thick ribbons
  • 1 head Calabrese Broccoli thinly sliced into 1/2cm thick peices
  • 700 ml Vegetable Stock
  • 2 Tablespoons Sunflower Oil
  • 2 Medium Green Finger Chillies thinly sliced
  • 2 Medium Onions finely diced
  • 4 Cloves Garlic finely diced
  • 20 g Fresh Ginger peeled and finely diced
  • 2 Teaspoons Cumin Seeds
  • 2 Teaspoons Coriander Seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Turmeric
  • 1 (400g) Can Chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 15 g Fresh Coriander finely chopped


  • First cook the potatoes. Place them into a large saucepan and cover with water. Boil for 8-10 minutes until just cooked. Drain and reserve.
  • In a separate pan combine the chopped spring greens, broccoli and stock. Bring to a boil and cook for 2-3 minutes until the broccoli has started to soften and the greens have wilted.
  • Pour the stock and greens into a food processor and whizz until smooth. Reserve until needed.
  • Heat the sunflower oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Toss in the cumin and coriander seeds and toast for about a minute until they begin to release their fragrance.
  • Tip in the chopped chillies, onion, garlic and ginger. Fry for 4-5 minutes until the onion is soft and is starting to take a little colour.
  • Pour in the cooked potatoes, chickpeas and turmeric. Combine evenly with the cooking veggies and spices. Then pour in the blended greens. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and season to taste. Finish the saag with the chopped fresh coriander sprinkled over the top.
