1 pound of spinach (approx)
1 package soft/silken tofu
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves
3 T lemon juice
1 t turmeric
salt and pepper to taste
Brown rice or bread to serve with the borani
Boil a pot of water and while the water is boiling, saute the onion in a separate pan (no oil needed of course!). Add all the spinach to the boiling water. After all the spinach has been submerged into the water, drain the water out using a strainer. Then put the spinach on a cutting board and chop it messily--just basically beat on the spinach like it's someone you are mad at.
Add the spinach to the onion pan and saute both together.
Put garlic, tofu, and lemon juice in a blender and mix it all up until smooth.
Add the yogurt mix to the spinach, add salt and pepper and you're done! Serve it with brown rice or bread. If you want, you can make some extra yogurt sauce to serve on the side. Amir even chopped up some cucumbers really fine and added them to the side yogurt--amazing!!
