Add Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) and Ground Ginger (1/2 Tbsp) to large sauce pan over medium heat.

Remove from heat and allow to cool 5 minutes or so, then transfer to refrigerator on hot pad for another 5-7 minutes. This is to make sure the spinach and water have cooled enough to be transferred to a food processor.

While spinach cools, preheat oven to 445 degrees F (230 degrees C).

Once spinach has cooled, add it to the bowl of a food processor. Add Water (1 1/2 cups) and pulse several times to better chop the spinach, careful not to puree.
step 7
Once onions have softened and are translucent, add Garam Masala (1 tsp), Ground Cumin (1/2 Tbsp), Ground Coriander (1 tsp), Chili Powder (1 tsp), Smoked Paprika (1 tsp), Ground Turmeric (1/2 tsp), Curry Powder (1 tsp), Salt (1 tsp) and Ground Black Pepper (3/4 tsp). Stir and cook for about 3-4 minutes.

Then add the Diced Tomatoes (1 can), stir to combine, and cook for another five minutes or until the tomato begin to break down. Use back of fork to mash larger tomatoes pieces. Stir Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (1/2 cup) into the skillet, then add the cooked and blended spinach along with the water.
