1). In a hot oil, fry your onions, tomato(es) for a minute and a half, on high heat, while stirring.
2). Add in your bouillon cubes, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
3). Crack your eggs. Beat it, and toss in…and….SCRAMBLE!!!
4). Add Spinach. Add the spinach after the eggs start looking cooked, because you don’t want to overcook the eggs and let them become too dry, and you don’t want to overcook the spinach too, only needs a minute.
5). Enjoy with toast, or fried yams, or plantains!
