Meatless Monday Recipe

I believe this has been adapted from a recipe I found online. It is a popular Indian dish that pairs well with Naan, or any bread really.

Saag Aloo

2 tbs oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
pinch of garam masala
1 pound spinach, chopped
1 cup water
1 tsp salt
1 cup yogurt
4 potatoes, cubed & cooked
squeeze of lemon

Heat oil in large pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add garlic, ginger and spices, saute another 3 minutes. Stir in spinach, water, and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, simmer for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Use a blender to puree half of the mixture. Return puree to pot with potatoes. Simmer 5-10 minutes. Stir in yogurt, simmer briefly, remove from heat add lemon and serve with Naan Roti, Pita, or whatever bread you prefer.
