1 onion cut in small cubes
1/2 red pepper cut in small cubes
3 minced cloves of garlic
1 tbs olive oil
1/2 kilo spinach

1 tbs tamari
1/2 cup water
1 zucchini sliced diagonally
about 5 leaves of filo, each one brushed with olive oil
chili powder
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbs pine nuts

-sauté onions and garlic in the olive oil
-add the red pepper and a pinch of salt
-add hiziki and cook a bit more giving it a couple of good stirs
-add tamari and water, cover and cook for 10 minutes
-add the cooked sweet potatoes and tamari and cook for about 5 more minutes
-add the chili and spinach and continue cooking until the spinach begins to wilt
-add pine nuts
-line an ovenproof dish with the layers of filo(each brushed with olive oil)
-put the Spinach hiziki filling in the filo and place the slices of zucchini nicely on top
-brush the zucchini with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt
-bake at about 180*C for about 15 minutes, taking care the sides of the filo don’t burn

I served this dish with brown rice and a green salad, for dessert I am still contemplating the idea of fresh fruit with a drizzle of coconut cream!
