  • Meanwhile, heat a little oil in the pan, add chopped onions and tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally for about 5-7 minutes and a saucy color.
  • Steaming the greens – the vegetables propped all together in a bowl – microwave for about 2 minutes so that the vegetables are steamed yet don’t lose their crunch.
