Indian Saag

Submitted by: DOGSNRODENTS

Introduction

My version of http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Indian-Saag/D
etail.aspx to make it a bit healthier.

Also, I didn't have a full pound of spinach, but you're supposed to, I only had 13.5 oz of spinach (that is reflected in the nutritional value)

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    * 4.5 Tbsp I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
    * 2 teaspoons cumin
    * 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    * 2 cloves garlic, chopped
    * 2 tablespoons ground turmeric
    * 1 pound chopped fresh mustard greens
    * 1 pound chopped fresh spinach
    * 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    * 1 teaspoon ground coriander
    * 1 teaspoon salt substitute

Directions

1. In a large skillet or wok, melt butter substitute over medium-high heat, and cook and stir in 2 teapsoons cumin, cayenne, garlic, and turmeric until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
2. Stir in the chopped mustard greens and spinach a little at a time, adding the tougher parts first (the stems and thicker leaves). Continue to add greens, and cook and stir until all greens have been added and all are thoroughly wilted. Stir in the 1 tsp cumin, coriander, and salt substitute. Cover; reduce heat and simmer until greens are tender, about 10 minutes, adding water as needed to keep the greens moist.

Makes 6 servings.

  • I made this with chicken. It wasn't quite what I was hoping for in a saag, but still tasted decently good. Just don't expect what you get from an indian restaurant from this! - 7/31/13

  • This is great!! Even my 8 year old stepdaughter loves them. We have a CSA and every spring we get a ton of spinach and spicy mustard greens. I've thrown so much of it away because I didn't know what to do with it. - 8/26/10
