Tanzanian Curried Spinach With Peanut Butter

Tanzanian Curried Spinach With Peanut Butter created by Leggy Peggy

The original recipe came from the Africhef recipe website, however I make it just a little bit different. This can be served as a side dish, or over rice as a main dish!

ingredients

directions

  • 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.

    Yum! This was so quick and easy. It made a perfect side dish for curried fish with saffron rice. Quite the multicultural meal, I know. :) The only thing I changed was adding a green bell pepper at the same time as the onion for a little more veggie punch. I knew that the spinach was going to cook down to nothing so I'm glad there was some more substance in there. This is a keeper!

    A half batch of this was perfect for our vegetarian exchange student. Used Recipe #174350, baby spinach and half a tin of chopped tomatoes. Have made a similar recipe that calls for a bit more peanut butter, and think the extra dollop is worth it. Made and enjoyed for Zaar World Tour. Thanks!
