Make Saag Aloo Vegetarian for a Healthy Version

This vegetarian saag aloo with frozen spinach is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegetarian cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegetarian pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegetarian recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless meals for your table.

What’s In This Crock Pot Saag Aloo?

Fresh onions, potatoes, and spinach are keys to this dish… with some amazing pantry staple ingredients.  My list of 125 Top Pantry Staple Ingredients has some of my favorite spices and add-ins for Indian food.

  • Potatoes, Garlic, Onion – I get all the fresh produce for my recipes from my garden and from Misfits Market – they sell all organic produce at a super discounted price, and it’s purchased direct from the farmers. We get Misfit Market boxes every other week and love picking out our favorite seasonal produce for delivery.  You can get $10 off your first $30 box by clicking here! 
    If you think organic produce is too expensive… think again, and give Misfits Market a look!

How Do I Make Saag Aloo with Frozen Spinach?

  • In a large pot, add diced potatoes with just enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil, and cook for 15-20 minutes until potatoes are tender and can be pierced with a fork. Drain and set potatoes aside.
  • In another pot (or the same pot, just cleaned out), add the coconut oil, onions, and garlic. Cook on low heat for 5 minutes until vegetables start to become translucent. Add the cumin seed, garam masala, cumin powder, ginger, turmeric, chili flakes, salt and black pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring well so the onion and garlic are coated in the spice. Add the frozen spinach, water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low then allow spinach to cook for 15 minutes.  
  • Using an immersion blender, blend the spinach and onion mixture until it creamy. Add the cooked potatoes and coconut milk, and simmer for an additional 10 minutes until the saag is warmed all the way through. Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more salt, pepper, or chili flakes as desired.
  • Serve with basmati rice, garlic naan bread, and enjoy!

Frozen Spinach Recipes for the WIN

I used frozen spinach for this recipe instead of fresh. By using freezer ingredients, I can stock up when they are on sale, and use them in all kinds of great dishes. It saves me a trip to the store, and I can have amazing spinach thawed in no time.

    The name of this recipe was so foreign to me I just had to try it. It sounded wild and cool in a fun way. I always have plenty of rice at hand as well as potatoes onions and a variety of spices. The combination of all was amazing
