How to Prepare Cameroonian Fried Spinach with Recipe

This recipe is modified from the food I ate in Cameroon. It is traditionally served with whole grilled chicken and grilled potatoes and plantains. You eat everything with your fingers! (it tastes much better that way).


  • 1 (10 ounces) package baby spinach, rinsed
  • 1 cup fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and cut into quarters
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • garlic powder to taste


  1. Heat the olive oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and onions and sauté almost halfway done.
  2. Pour in the spinach and sprinkle with garlic powder. Fry until the spinach wilt, about 5 to 7 minutes.
