I had someone ask for the recipe for the vegan crock pot Saag Aloo I whipped up last week and I had every intention of providing you with some stellar pictures of my delicious creation. Alas, me + camera + Saag Aloo = enemies. I couldn't get a good photo to save my life. Ugh. So I'm just going to give you the recipe here:
8 small potatoes - I used white but I imagine that any potato would do
2 big bunches/bags of fresh spinach, trimmed
2 cups low-sodium veggie broth
1/2 small onion sliced thin
drizzle of olive oil
1 tablespoon tumeric
1 tablespoon yellow curry
1 tablespoon pepper
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon fenugreek
1 teaspoon masala
1 teaspoon chili powder or 1/2 fresh chili pepper of choice
Peel and cubed potatoes and place in crockpot with all other ingredients except spinach. Stir well, turn on medium to high heat and then cram as much spinach as possible on top of everything. Cook for 2 1/2 hours or until potatoes are soft but not mushy.
That's it! This dish will be better after sitting for a bit and letting the spices do their work. And just note that I do love my spices so if you don't then you might want to cut back on them a wee bit...
We paired our finished product with some simple homemade naan bread and then finished up with a batch of spicy chocolate chip chai cookies. Damn! This one was one good meal!
Crock pot cooking has always been a favorite of mine. There's something about a one dish meal that's easy to make but can still be healthy that floats m'boat...
