    A wonderfully warming West African veggie stew brought to you as part of our Buzzfeed Tasty Fiver feast collection, with plenty of leftovers to enjoy another day.

  1. We start by frying off our mushrooms in a tsp of oil until golden brown. You may need to do this in batches so set aside while you do the rest.

  2. Finely chop your onion, garlic, chilli and ginger for kick, then add to sweat over a medium heat in 1 tbsp oil until soft and fragrant.

  3. Add in your turmeric powder for warmth and tomato puree for richness and cook off until the tomato paste is darker. Slowly add in your spinach, a handful at a time to wilt and then your cooked mushrooms and roughly chopped tomatoes. Add a good pinch of salt and black pepper too.

  4. Give everything a good stir and then let it bubble away for 20-30 minutes until soft and cooked through.

  5. In the meantime, cook your rice according to pack instructions and then fold through some very finely chopped parsley. Serve!
