Tasty Tuesday August 30

It’s been a while since I did one of these but I found something that was too good not to share. 

We have these seasoning kits at work that are called “made from scratch kits”. They are from all over the world. Tonight I did Indian Butter Chicken and wanted something green to serve on the side. So, like many of us do these days, I googled it. I came up with a spinach recipe and decided to try it. Dinner was a winner! 

Indian Spiced Spinach
1 10 oz bag baby spinach 

1/2 onion, finely chopped

1 inch piece of ginger, finely minced or grated

2 cloves garlic, minced. 

1 T cooking oil, if you have coconut oil, this would be a good place to use it.

1/2 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp Garam Masala

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp turmeric

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant. Add spices and stir well. 

Add the spinach several handfuls at a time, turning and stirring frequently until it’s all wilted and in the pot. If you do it slowly, you won’t need any water. Cover and cook for another 5 minutes until tender, stirring frequently. 

2-4 servings, depending how generous you are.
