Tropical spinach is a vast family of greens that includes true spinach relatives as well as entirely different species.

  1. 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  2. 1/4 cup dried blueberries
  3. Boiling water
  4. 1/4 cup walnut or olive oil
  5. 2 teaspoons curry powder
  6. 1 garlic clove, smashed
  7. 1 teaspoon honey
  8. 1 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  10. 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  11. 8 cups tropical spinach leaves (3 ounces), washed and spun dry
  1. In a small saucepan, cover the dried cranberries and blueberries with boiling water and let stand until softened, about 5 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Heat the oil in the same saucepan. Add the curry and garlic and cook over low heat for 1 minute; discard the garlic. Add the honey, salt and cayenne, then whisk in the orange juice.
