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. One quick and easy way to serve it is Spinach with Bacon and Pine Nuts.

Total time: 
Serves: 4
Spinach is really healthy. It is a source of vitamin A. It is rich in iron, calcium and protein.
  • 1 kg fresh spinach
  • Salt
  • 1 ¼ cup (3 dl) milk
  • 2-3 tablespoons oil
  • 20 g flour
  • 1 clove garlic
  1. Wash the spinach, put in boiling salted water and cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Prepare a light roux, flavour with crushed garlic. (Light roux is prepared by frying the flour with the oil until it turns light brown.)
  3. Add to the spinach and add milk to obtain the desired thickness.
  4. Bring to boil and cook for a few minutes.
  5. Serve with fried eggs and a few boiled potatoes.
