Sunday Slow Cooker:  Saag Paneer

A couple of weeks back I included this Healthy Saag Paneer recipe in the vegetarian meal plans and after getting some really positive responses it seemed like the perfect thing to share this weekend. Packed with vegetables, fiber, and protein, this delicious Indian dish made primarily with spinach is a great vegetarian meal. It also tastes delicious over chicken or beef if you want to a meat friendly option. Have leftovers? Serve on flatbread to make an Indian inspired pizza.

    I love Indian food but have been intimidated to try to make it. This looks easy and delicious. Can’t wait to try it..

    How blended was it supposed to be? I threw it in the cuisenart and it came out like baby food. I’ve eaten this in Indian restaurants and I don’t remember it being the consistency of baby food. Where did I go wrong?
