Spinach a la Catalan

This one's from a friend who suggested a healthy sweet and savory lunch. The best thing about this, takes less than five mins to make. So a quick and healthy tasty lunch.

Ingredients (Serves 2):

  • Fresh Spinach: 4 cups
  • Pine Seeds: 2 tbsp
  • Raisins: 2 tbsp
  • Pepper: 1 tsp whole (optional) 
  • Cumin: 1/2 tsp (optional)
  • Butter: 1 tbsp for cooking
  • Salt: To taste
Preparation (5 mins):

Heat butter  on a low flame, add pepper corns. Once butter becomes hot, throw in pine seeds and raisins. Fry on medium heat till pine seeds start turning golden brown. 

Shred spinach into mix. Stir till spinach starts to wilt. Remove from flame and plate. The raisins and pine nuts add sweet and nutty contrasts to the buttery spinach providing the 'chew' in the dish.


  • Think this goes with steamed rice. Else serve with a bread roll and cream cheese.
