spinach

I have a bag of spinach salad that's about 6 days out of date. the bag hasn't been opened though, and it looks fine if a little wilted. would it still be okay to eat? Maybe freeze and put into green smoothies?

Curry Paste and Soy Milk

Good evening!

Have any  of you successfully made a tasty curry with chili paste and soy milk? I don't have any coconut milk on hand, but am still in a curry mood.

Thanks!

Edited to add: I am aware that curry can be made without any kind of milk component. I'm specifically wondering about the sort of curry that is generally made with coconut milk. You are welcome to post whatever recipes or curry suggestions you want, I'm happy to see 'em, but I really want to hear if anyone has tried curry with soy milk. :-)

Curried Pita Chips

Ingredients:

2 whole wheat pita pockets
Olive oil
Curry powder
Turmeric (optional)

Directions:

Preheat the over to 350 and cut up the two pita pockets. Sprinkles on a little bit of olive oil, try not to overdo it or you will have soft mushy-like pieces of pita. Next, sprinkle enough curry powder to coat all of the pieces (again, try not to overdo it) to your liking. If you would like (for extra nutrition) you can sprinkle on some turmeric as well (if not that's fine, it's in the curry powder anyway). Spread out onto an ungreased baking sheet and put into the over. Check the crisps every 5 minutes but chances are they will be done between 5-10 minutes, I can't imagine them still cooking and not being blackened after that. The crisps should be golden-ish and a little hard but still a bit soft. Take out and let cool and they will finish hardening as they cool. Viola! Curried Pita Chips!
