African Recipe Favorite - Tanzanian Curried Spinach with Peanut Butter



Warm up your taste buds with the delicious flavors of coconut milk, spinach and curry.

What You Need: 

2 lbs spinach (collards may be substituted) 

1½ oz peanut butter 

1 tomato 

1 onion 

2 tsp curry powder 

1 cup coconut milk 

3 Tbsp cooking oil 

1 tsp salt

How To Make The Curry: Wash the spinach, and roll the leaves together and chop. Put the tomato in boiling water for 30 seconds to 1 minute, peel and chop. Peel and chop the onion. Mix the peanut butter with the coconut milk. Heat the oil over medium heat in a large frying pan. Add the onion, tomato, salt and curry powder and sauté for 5 minutes, until the onion becomes soft and translucent. Add the spinach, and continue cooking for about 15 to 20 minutes, until the spinach is cooked. Add the peanut butter and coconut milk mixture. Simmer, for another 5 minutes, stirring constantly, to ensure that the mixture does not stick to the pot. The curried spinach and peanut butter may be served as a side dish, or as a full meal when served with rice or beans. Find more African recipes Here!
