Ingredients

  • 32 ounces frozen baby spinach, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 medium-sized onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup light coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons salted peanuts, chopped

Cook the spinach according to package directions. Drain well in a colander and squeeze out any remaining liquid.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion, ½ teaspoon of the salt, curry powder, and ginger. Cook until the onion is softened, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes.
