A recipe for Gambian Spinach with Peanut Sauce for #SundaySupper’s celebration of healthy green foods!
With St. Patrick’s Day in a few days, #SundaySupper is getting together to celebrate healthy green foods. Christie of A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures is hosting this week and I am sharing a recipe for Gambian Spinach with Peanut Sauce.
Gambian Spinach with Peanut Sauce
This incredibly flavorful and healthy meal comes together quickly with only a handful of ingredients and a few minutes on the stove. I used spinach as the base, but other greens like kale, collards, turnip, or cassava will work nicely. After simmering on the stove until wilted, the greens are coated in a thick peanut sauce and served with rice.
The moisture from cooking the spinach created plenty of liquid for the sauce. If the mixture is a bit too dry, add a little more water with the peanut butter.
The spinach leaves I used were larger, so I roughly chopped them. If you use baby spinach or smaller greens, cutting may not be needed.
A few recipes I came across also included a little tomato paste or lemon juice.
