How to cook spinach?

spinach

Of course, there are many ways but this is one of my favourites! I like cooking lovely purslane in a similar way to this as well. We need to wait for it to come into season I’m afraid:)

  1. Wash the spinach, leave in a bowl full of water and a bit of apple vinegar as it cleans the bacteria.
  2. If you’re using brown rice, boil it in a pan with water for 10 minutes to soften it a bit.  If you’re using white rice, skip this step.
  3. Peel and chop up a big onion.
  4. Peel and chop 2 or 3 tomatoes (or do it the easy way – buy some chopped tomatoes).
  5. Heat some olive oil in a pan for a bit, then add the onions.
  6. When they turn a bit yellowish, add the tomatoes.
  7. Then add the spinach and stir well. Don’t be scared to use the whole pack! It will look like too much, but it will reduce a lot.
  8. Then add a half a mug of rice to this mixture. (I like it with a lot of rice, but it depends on your choice).
  9. Then add 1 or 2 mugs of warm water depending on how thick the mixture is. Stir them altogether, the water level shouldn’t be too high above the spinach – just slightly over…
  10. Cook it for 10 more minutes then serve with a drizzle of lemon juice and a bit of yoghurt on the side.

    Made this without the rice and added a dash each of garlic powder, salt and pepper. Excellent! Thank you for sharing the recipe.
