Episode Summary

As fate would have it, our Freshtopia kitchen got a mini-makeover featuring Ikea furnishings courtesy of the show Dream Home with the lovely host Lisa Quinn! It’s now super organized and has some nice new accoutrements that we’re perhaps a little too stoked about… Today’s recipe is inspired by Palak Paneer, a delicious Indian spinach dish, and it’s full of flavor and nutrition. Tanja has so much energy from all those healthy greens, she can’t stop dancing, no matter how much you might wish otherwise! Big thanks to Dream Home, Lisa Quinn, and Ikea. Also, a special thanks to Jonathan Coulton for the use of his hilariously awesome song “Ikea.” Visit his website to lavish praise, cash, and half-pony half-monkey monster dolls on him.Cilantro-Curry Spinach:Serves 2 as entrée, 4 as side dishLarge bunch spinach (about 4C tightly packed)1 Avocado, cubedSauce:1 bunch cilantro leaves (about 1 1/2C packed)1/2C chopped tomato4 sun-dried tomato halves, soaked in 1C filtered water1/4C olive oil, plus 1T for spinach2T onion, chopped1T ginger root, peeled and mincedSmall clove garlic, minced½ jalapeno, deseeded and chopped1T cumin1Tcoriander1T curry powder1t raw honey or agave syrupSea salt to tasteGround cashews to garnishSoak the sun-dried tomatoes in the water until they are quite soft, (about 30 minutes) and reserve the soak water.
