Egyptian Spiced Prawns

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Tinkerbell

A delicious blend of flavors, these prawns are not spicy hot, as my toddler was able to eat them just fine. The cumin really stands out in this dish but not overpoweringly. I found the original version of this recipe on & made alterations in ingredients to suit our tastes. :)

No sugar! and definately sooooooooooooooooo EASY!
Quick, simple, had meal on the table in less than 10 minutes, TRUE!
Added spinach until wilted, great way to add healthy colourful veggies to an already healthy dish too!
