Very delicious. The bunch of fresh spinach I bought weighed in at half a pound so I added some kale, boiled until tender. To make it vegan I used a high quality coconut oil. We were out of mustard seeds, so I used some stone ground prepared mustard. There was a thin liquid at the bottom of the dish from the steamed spinach, so I thickened it by adding some cornstarch. Turned out great!
