Spinach dish

Do you remember Popeye? I think he put the whole spinach industry on the map. When I was a child my mother used this recipe and prepared spinach at least once or twice a week. I still love it and kept this tradition. I usually made with fresh spinach from the market but you can use frozen as well. It’s such a great source of iron and with a subtle flavour I find you can use it with a whole range of other ingredients to make great dishes.
