This AIP Coconut Creamed Greens recipe is a hearty and rich side for any special occasion or holiday meal. Its a twist on creamed spinach which you find around the holidays. This version uses a mix of hardy greens rather than spinach and more intense spices like ginger, gathoda powder and turmeric.
What is ganthoda powder used for?
Ganthoda powder is used as a ground pepper substitute in AIP dishes. It’s very similar to ginger but with a slight peppery flavor. But it’s rooted in Indian cuisine.
