The Frugal Kitchen: Easy Sag Paneer

This recipe literally takes only as long to cook as a pot of rice.  A wonderful and different quick meal.


1 package chopped frozen spinach
1/4 package queso blanco
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 Tbsp. ground fresh ginger
2 Tbsp. oil
1 Tbsp. butter or ghee
1/4 tsp. garam masala
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. salt, to taste
3 Tbsp. cream

In pan heat oil and butter over medium heat.  Add garlic and ginger, cook for 30 seconds, then add in defrosted spinach.  Stir in spices, salt and cream.  Bring up to a boil, then lower to a simmer.  When it is heated through crumble queso blanco (mild Mexican cheese similar to farmer's cheese) over the top.  Gently stir in cheese.  Serve over rice.

This recipe makes three servings.  Double or triple the recipe as needed.  Leftover sag paneer can be used as a filling for an omlette the next day.

God bless,
