Coconut Creamed Spinach Recipe

This was a really great recipe. I enjoyed it a lot. It's quite tasty and it was the perfect Indian flare for Christmas day here in the U.S. I liked the diversity on my plate. If you like cumin and curry, then you'll like this.


14-Ounce Can Coconut Milk
16-Ounces Frozen Chopped Spinach
1 Onion, Chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 Teaspoon Curry Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Turmeric
1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
14-Ounce Can Diced Tomatoes, Drained
1/4 Cup Water
1 Teaspoon Salt


1. Add the onion and olive oil to a large skillet and warm over medium heat. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the onion softens and begins to brown.

2. Add in the garlic and the frozen spinach. Stir and continue to cook for another 10 minutes.

3. Add in the ginger, cumin, curry, turmeric, cayenne pepper, tomatoes, water, and salt. Basically everything but the coconut milk. Stir and cook the contents of the skillet for about 10 minutes until everything is thawed, wilted, and smooth. Then add in the coconut milk and stir that in with everything else well. Continue simmering just until the coconut milk has warmed up to the same temperature as everything else.

4. Divide, plate, and serve. That's it. Enjoy!
