Spinach Laing with Tofu

I learned how to cook laing from my sister-in-law who is from Bicol. I crave for this every now and then but Taro leaves ( gabi leaves) are not available in my place. I tried spinach and it tastes as good as taro leaves so here is my recipe for laing using spinach.

200 grams Spinach (can be replaced with Taro leaves)
200 grams tofu ( sliced to your desired size)
1 tablespoon ginger strips
1 onion
2 red chili
1 tablespoon shrimp paste ( Bagoong)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
2 cups coconut milk
salt to taste

1. Dry the spinach leaves and cut into small pieces.
2. Fried the tofu and set aside.

3.Saute the garlic, ginger and onion then add the shrimp paste ( bagoong) and chili.

4.Add only the 1 cup of coconut milk and bring to a boil.
5. Add the spinach then simmer until the texture is similar to "laing na gabi". ( around 30 minutes over medium heat), then add the fried tofu and simmer for few minutes.

6.Add the rest of the coconut milk then simmer for 2 minutes and turn off the heat then serve with a smile :-).
