Spinach in Coconut Milk

Epinards au lait de coco

Sometimes we all need some easy and quick meals. Sometimes we all need some comforting meals that remind us of home. And sometimes we just want something cooked so we don’t fret about ‘what’s for dinner’?.  (momlife!)

Here’s one of my go to dinners when I am either pressed for time, didn’t feel like following our meal-plans or ‘just’ making use of the leftover coconut milk.

Vegetarian or not, this dish is perfect for the whole family. It’s super easy to cook, cheap, healthy and accommodates all styles of eating; vegan, vegetarians and allergy-diets. You can always switch up your fats and include meat (or not).
