I used a combination of canned tomatoes and black-eyed peas along with frozen spinach for an earthy and comforting meal. I loved the coriander and spinach together and thought the garlic and pepper added some other great flavors to the dish. Served on a bed of bulgur and we were thrilled. I bet this would be great on polenta wedges as well. Thanks for sharing Earthymom. Made for *Pick a Chef - Spring 2008*.
