Set stove to medium heat. In a non-stick pan or skillet, add oil. When it’s hot, add half of diced fresh herbs and crushed garlic until the aroma fills the kitchen. Yum. Add spinach (slice if you like), mushrooms, pinches of the powdered spices (curry, black pepper, salt etc.), and the “toops” of water. Stir with a slotted spoon for 2 minutes. Top off with remaining fresh herbs and let sit for a minute. Remove from heat, and set on a white plate to see that rich green pop.
