Recipe by Wildflour
READY IN: 50mins




  • Wash the spinach leaves, stack and roll leaves together, then coarsely chop.
  • Place the tomato carefully into a small pot of boiling water for 30 seconds, peel skin off. Slice tomato in half and scoop out runny inside, discard this part, then coarsely chop the fleshy part.
  • In small bowl, whisk the peanut butter and coconut milk til smooth.
  • Heat the butter over medium low heat in large frying pan.
  • Add the onion, tomato, salt and curry powder and sauté for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Stir only occasionally so that you don't break up the tomato too much.
  • Add the spinach, and continue cooking for about 10 minutes, until the spinach is softened, but not overly cooked.
  • Stir in the peanut butter/coconut milk mixture.
  • Simmer, over medium-low heat, for about another 5-8 minutes, stirring constantly, to make sure that the mixture doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Season lightly with a little coarse ground pepper to taste.
  • Serve as is as a side dish, or over hot cooked rice for a main dish.
