    Baby Kato's Note:

    This is another recipe from the web, which I found for our ZWT 7 - for Africa, which I have not tried. The addition of chopped peanuts to the spinach gives it a delightful crunchiness, the grated coconut is an unexpected flavor.

      This afforded me a chance to have a new method for preparing spinach. I did cut the peanuts by half. The Tabasco is a must. Made for Aussie Swap.

      This is a real winner, BK! Loved the crunch from the peanuts in combination with the soft spinach! The flavours blend very nicely and the heat is just right. I think this would go great with many different types of meals and cant wait to try your suggestion of serving it with an egg. I had it plain this time and really liked that, too!
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us!

      Great side dish! Have made other African spinach and peanut recipes but this one is by far the best so far. Made as written right down to sauteing the peanuts and onions together. This is a keeper and will be enjoyed again. Thanks for the post.
