Lima Bean and Spinach Satay

This was just thrown together from what I have. After spending nearly $200 the past 2 times at the grocery store I've been trying to use up what I've actually bought instead of constantly buying new things...

4-5 tiny white onions
1-2 cloves garlic
olive oil to sautee
1 can green lima beans, drained and rinced
1 bag baby spinach
1/2 bag frozen pineapple wedges
1 can no salt added diced tomatoes
2 spoonfuls of natural crunchy peanut butter
3 spoonfuls of Thai chili sauce (the sweetened kind) - use to taste
a bit of ginger powder, or ground ginger - to taste
a bit of black pepper - to taste
soy sauce to taste
about 1/4-1/2 cup water

Sautee onions, garlic, and beans in the olive oil for about 3-5 minutes. Add tomatoes and about 1/2 the water, soy sauce, and peanut butter and simmer. Add pineapple after about 3-5 minutes. Simmer until pineapple is soft and beans are fully warmed and a little mushy. Add chili sauce and spices and simmer another 5 minutes or so. Add spinach and the rest of the water. Simmer until spinach is wilted and flavors mix.

Eat plain or over your choice of grain.
