We’re on the spinach train. It’s the first thing we plant in the spring because it’s so quick to grow. To be honest, it’s not one of our favorites but it’s a quick crop and we like quick crops.
2 Tbsp grape seed or avocado oil
1 cup onion, chopped
1 Tbsp garlic, minced
1 Tbsp ginger, mince2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp white pepper
1 lb spinach, chopped
1 cup water
1 cup yoghurt
What to do:
Heat oil over medium heat in a large pot.
Add onions and sauté until translucent – 4 to 5 minutes.
Add garlic, ginger and spices – 2 to 3 minutes.
Add spinach, water and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook – 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove from heat, cool and blend until smooth.
Return to pan, heat and simmer – 5 to 10 minutes.
Add a touch more water if the spinach thickens to the consistency of paste.
Remove from heat and blend in yoghurt.
This a perfect dish with potatoes and rice. Use it as a garnish on top of meat, fish or grilled vegetables.
