Spinach so nutritious!

Posted by Muriel Hedgcock

Spinach is such a brilliant vegetable. High in Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Folic acid and super charged with Vitamin A.

500g Baby Spinach leaves washed
a little butter or oil
1 large or 2 small onions chopped
1-2 clove garlic grated or crushed
1 Tbsp tomato puree ( or 1 chopped tomato)
1 flat tsp Herbamare
or Salt & Pepper

Melt butter and cook onion till golden then add garlic. Add wet Spinach leaves, Herbamare or salt and tomato puree. If the Spinach is wet enough you should not need to add water. Cook quickly for 5 min. The Spinach will have reduced in size and will be limp. Using a hand blender blend quickly here and there. The Spinach should still be chunky not runny.

If you like things extra tasty and slightly richer add a little cream about 50ml-100ml and stir.
Serve as a side or as a filling for baked potatoes and top with feta or grated cheese.
