  Spring has sprung!… we managed to make it through another record of rain.  Ah Vancouver …our wonderful temperate rain forest.  The first signs of spring is in the air…blossoms are  tentatively making they’re appearance.  It’s still slowly warming up and nothing like a curry in your belly to help with the dampness of rain. We have spinach on the menu this market and one of my all time favourite curries is Palak Paneer… a spinach curry!  It may sound oddly unappealing but trust me it will surprise you.  Once you try it, it might make it on your favourite food list too!  Check out this Palak (Spinach) Tofu Paneer recipe.
