Spinach - (M'chicha) - East African

Spinach -  (M'chicha) - East African created by PaulaG

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.

    Must say that I enjoyed this a lot. I did sub kale for the spinach as I currently have a lot of it. I steamed it for a short time just to soften it a bit. I wouldn't thought of cooking the onions and large chopped peanuts to but this is a great new way (for me) to add flavor and texture. I made a half amount and there was still lots so I'll happily finish it off tonight.

    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!<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us!<br/>Made and reviewed for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #55 August 2011.
