    I loved the subtle creaminess from the coconut milk (I may have used a little more than was called for). I used a combination of spinach and bok choy and frozen squash. Since the squash was frozen I cut down on the cooking time and the bok choy still had some bite to it which I enjoyed. I seasoned it with kosher salt and a little homemade cayenne pepper for a teensy bit of heat. Made for ZWT 7.
