Quick and delicious spinach dish – use it as a starter or with pasta

31 Aug


This dish is very easy to make. 10-15 mins – and you are ready to eat – and it tastes fantastic. I was inspired to do it on  a holiday in Poland. I thought the tha Polish cuisine wasn’t much more than meat and cabbage. But was I wrong! I was very surprised to find many vegetarian options on the menus, and if you order a salad you will get a huge portion.

You only need very few ingredients to make the dish and you can use it on it’s own as a starter or for pasta.


200 g fresh spinach
1 big onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
100 g mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon sundried tomatoes (in oil), chopped
½ teaspoon nutmeg
Thin sliced parmesan, thinly sliced (optional)
Fresh pasta (optional)
Sunflower oil

Fry onion and garlic for about 3 mins. Add mushrooms and fry at high heat for 5-7 mins until the mushrooms are golden. Add the spinach and turn down heat to medium heat. After about 5 mins the spinach will have reduced a lot – add the sundried tomatoes and fry for a few minutes more. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste.

When I serve the dish as a starter I plate up with a food ring to make a nice round shape. If you eat cheese place thinly sliced parmesan and maybe serve with some good bread.

If you use the dish for pasta grate the parmesan on the hot dish.
