I am a big fan of potatoes, but I tend to make the same potato dishes like mashed potatoes, baked potato or potato salad. My mum recently told me about a potato and spinach dish she likes to make and I could not believe how simple the recipe was. Spinach is one of my favorite vegetables so having it with potatoes is a perfect combination for me. I made this spinach and potatoes last night and it will definitely become a regular on my menu. This side dish is great with steamed vegetables, rotisserie chicken and avocado slices like my mum did below.
2 pounds white potatoes
3 garlic cloves minced
1/4 cup onions finely chopped
1 pound spinach
juice from one lemon
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
- In a large pot ,cover potatoes with salted water and bring to boil over medium heat until tender.Drain potatoes and set aside.
- Heat oil in a large saucepan and add onion and garlic.Cook for about a minute until onion softens.
- Add spinach and cook until it is wilted then add potatoes ,lemon juice and salt and pepper.
- Stir and cook for about 5 minutes and serve warm.
