 ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
 ½ cup hot water, divided
 1 onion, chopped
 2 tomatoes, chopped
 1 tbsp garlic, minced
 ¼ cup cilantro
 ½ tsp cinnamon
 ½ tsp tumeric
 ¼ tsp cayenne
 1 tsp salt
 1 tbsp coconut oil
 1 cup peas
 2 carrots, diced
 ½ head of cauliflower, cut into chunks
 2 cups spinach

Soak coconut in 1/4 cup hot water for about 10 minutes in a blender jar - or a large bowl if you are using a stick blender.


Add onion, tomatoes, garlic, ginger, and spices and puree. If you need more water, add it sparingly.


Preheat the Instant Pot to Saute on high heat. When hot, add coconut oil. After it melts, add the coconut mixture.


Do not stir. Allow it to cook until most of the water has evaporated (about 3-5 minutes)


Then stir constantly for about 2 more minutes, allowing flavors to meld.


Stir in chopped vegetables and other 1/4 cup water (except spinach).


Lock the lid in place, select low pressure and cook for 3 minutes.


Quick-release pressure. Stir in spinach until it's wilted and serve.
