Ingredients

280 g spinach 11 cups
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 15 mL
1 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/4 lemon

Before you start

Don't be surprised: the original volume will be considerably reduced after cooking.

Method

  1. Prepare the spinach. Wash and drain rapidly and transfer to a pot or saucepan without adding any water. The water trapped in the leaves after gentle shaking is enough to cook them.
  2. Add salt, cover and cook over high heat 3-4 min until the leaves wilt and turn very deep green. Avoid overcooking otherwise the spinach will become brownish.
  3. Transfer the spinach to a colander, press to remove excess water, then put into a salad bowl. Sprinkle with oil and lemon juice. Serve.

A very quick and simple recipe to add some vegetables to your dish... the flavor of olive oil and lemon with the spinach is always mouth watering.

There is nothing special about this recipe, it's basically boiled spinach with lemon juice and olive oil on it and a fancy name. Not bad, and better than just plain spinach
