Autumn has officially arrived. The weather is still in denial, but already there are some colder days. It's time to switch from eating salads 90% of the time to include some warmer food, like soup!
Now that the USA has had some spinach scares, it's time to give this veggie some love. Here in Holland there are beautyfull local fresh crops in the store. I'll be sharing two spinach recipes, soup today and a 'warm' salad in the next post.
Not doing any measurements today, just.. wing it.
- Spinach, a lot
- Ground beef
- Garlic, loads
- Beef broth
Make sure you've got a good broth, full of flavour- because apart from a garlic shock you won't be adding much.
It's quite easy to make- first pretend it's a stir fry; cook the onions and beef in a bit of coconut oil or other fat. Add half the garlic and a bit later the big, big amount of spinach. When the spinach starts to decrease in volume a bit, it's time to add the broth. Throw in the rest of the garlic and let it simmer for at least half an hour.
Remember, you shouldn't reheat spinach because of the nitrates. So if you're making a big batch, just leave it simmering and share with the whole neighbourhood. Or just help yourself a couple dozen times :)
