3 garlic cloves, minced
1 can coconut milk (400ml)
3/4 cup water
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
3 cups green cabbage, sliced thin
4 heaping cups fresh spinach
extra virgin olive oil
pita bread for garnish (optional)
plain yogurt for garnish (optional)
lime wedge for garnish (optional)

Method:
– heat a rondeau pan on medium high heat and add olive oil
– saute onion and garlic until the garlic is light brown in colour
– add coconut milk, water and spices
– stir and bring to a boil
