    Debbie R.'s Note:

    This is from "Best of African Regional Cooking". It's simple but great. I didn't drain the spinach after cooking; just used it with a small amount of water in the last step

      This side is so healthy, quick and easy that is perfect for hurry weeknights. The flavors are clean and simple which enables it to pair up with a verity of main dishes. We loved the addition of peanuts, made as written. Thanks for the post.
