Yummy side dish

I made my Quick Cauliflower Garbanzo Curry (June 2009) tonight for dinner and wanted a tasty low fat side dish to go along. This is so good. Worked well as a side but could easily be a main dish over rice or pasta.

Spinach with Sun-dried Tomato

1 vegetable bouillon cube dissolved in a cup of boiling water
1 lb. fresh spinach
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 bag of Trader Joe's frozen artichoke hearts (run water over them in a colander for a minute or so)
1/2 cup of sun-dried tomatoes ( I used Sonoma brand from Arbor Farms--really good)
1/4 cup tomato paste

In large skillet pour a bit of the bouillon in and heat, add spinach and cook until tender, remove from skillet. Add some more of the bouillon and sauté the onions, garlic and mushrooms until golden--you may need to add some more broth if it needs it. Add the artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, and tomato paste and stir around until warm. Add a little more broth if it looks like it needs it. Add the spinach back in and heat through.
