I made salmon for dinner tonight, and had spinach and pine nuts to to cook up on the side. In the end the side turned out really nicely, so here’s the recipe.
- Four handfuls of baby spinach
- One small onion
- A clove of garlic
- 1cm of ginger
- 1 green chilli
- ⅓ cup orange juice
- Balsamic vinegar
- ⅓ cup of pine-nuts
- Olive oil
Slice the onion, finely chop the garlic, ginger and chilli. On a medium heat fry the onions, garlic, ginger and chilli together until the onions brown (about 10 minutes.) Turn down the heat a little, then throw in the spinach, pour in the orange juice, and a few splashes of the balsamic vinegar. Add the pine nuts, then gently lift mix the leaves into the oil and sauce, and allow the leaves to wilt.
Stop before the leaves are reduced to mush, serve on the side. It was delicious, the onions were sweet, and the chilli gave it just a little bit of interesting heat.
