Aloo Palak (Spinach and Potatoes)

Vegetarian Times - Great Food, Good  Health, Smart Living

Kelly Martin from Vernon, Conn., admits she’s a huge lover of Indian food, but horrible when it comes to re-creating it. “I had some leftover coconut milk with no idea of how to use it. In it went, and voilà! Not only did it give me that Indian flavor I wanted, but it gave me a creamy texture I thought I could only get with cream.”

  • 2 medium potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (3 cups)
