Spinach Binge

There seems to be a lot of it about in the shops, and I can’t get enough of it. Not the boiled since last October thing that my gran did, or worse still, the yech that comes out of a tin. Just simple steamed spinach.

I’m often surprised at how much fuss people make over it.

You’ll need 100g per person.

Simply wash it, squeeze it dry, and bung it in a pan with a knob of butter and a pinch salt like this. It’s quite bulky so you may need to wrestle with it slightly.


Cover with a tightly fitting lid, and turn the heat on high for two minutes, until you hear some hissing and see some steam coming out from under the lid. Remove from the heat, wait another two minutes, and you get this.


No further faffing required, although you could stir in about a teaspoon of cream per serving if you want to be fancy.
