This recipe is from Tanzania. It takes very little time and is really fantastic. Even better the second day for lunch. I added ½ a brick of firm tofu and served it over quinoa, but it would also be good over basmati rice or noodles.

Has potential, but didn't come out quite like I hoped. 2lbs. of spinach seemed like a lot, and I ended up using about 8oz, which might be why. I also found I liked the texture better when pureed in the blender immediately before serving. Next time I will try more spinach and less coconut milk.

Very good. I used roughly cut frozen spinach, which worked fine.
