Clams in Sautéed Tomatoes

I love tomatoes. I like it's bright red orange color. Even as a child I can eat it raw, munching it like an apple.
I like putting it on my dishes as well, lots of it! I actually just harvested some from my mama's yard... 
Well, here's another simple dish.Instead of using the canned tomatoes, I made use of the fresh ones for my clams.
Clams in Sautéed Tomatoes


Ingredients:
1kl clams
5 big tomatoes, chunked
2 thumb-sized ginger, crushed
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
2 tbsp cooking oil
spinach , about 2 cups
salt, to taste
2 cups water

How to prepare:
> Wash the clams with water.Drain.Set aside.
> In a pot, heat oil. Sautée ginger, onion, garlic and tomatoes.
> Add the clams , stir. Add water. Bring to boil and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt.
   When cooked, turn off the heat. then add the spinach. We do not want to overcook the spinach,
    the heat from the pot is enough to cook the leaves.
> Then we are ready to serve. This is good for 5-6 persons. Enjoy

Variation:
> Instead of spinach, you can also put chili leaves (dahon sili) or moringa leaves (malunggay).
