Spinach - (M'chicha) - East African

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

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.
