Description

Like many Indian dishes, the much-loved palak paneer (spinach and fresh cheese) starts with humble ingredients that are transformed with the deft use of spices. A full 2 pounds of spinach cooks down to create the creamy sauce. Browned paneer (Indian-style firm, fresh cheese) makes the dish substantial enough for a vegetarian main. All you need to add is a side of naan bread or steamed rice. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Prerna Singh.

    Great flavor! I used my immersion blender to avoid going back and forth and dirtying dishes. I would recommend NOT using queso fresco as it easily melts, not getting even close to typical paneer. Will make again but only took a star down for the suggestion.
