2 cloves garlic, minced

Stir over heat until it becomes fragrant. Add salt, curry, and spices and stir to combine. Add broth and coconut milk, stir, cover, and reduce heat to low once mixture comes to a boil. Simmer for 50 minutes, or more if you want. Remove peppers if you want to and remove kafir leaves if you used them instead of the zest. Add pineapple, spinach, ad cilantro or parsley. Stir until pineapples are hot and spinach has started to wilt. Serve with rice, jasmine rice if you've got some!
