Spinach in Olive oil served with strawberries
In Bodrum Turkey, spinach is a year round vegetable and is a major item in our cuisine.
This recipe is a classic, and it can also be cooked with chard, kale, beat leaves and nettle or if you want to be creative you can mix them all :)
2 Onions chopped
1/2 cup Olive Oil
salt and pepper to taste
1,5 Kg Spinach
Seperate roots and leaves of the spinach, wash them very well. Than chop the leaves and cut the roots in halves. Stir fry the chopped onions in olive oil, first add the roots keep stirring until they are slightly cooked for about 5 minutes than add the leaves stir and close the lid of the pot and let it cook for another 5 minutes.
Add Magic Sauce (as described in this blog previously) cool and serve. Serving it with fresh strawberries makes a great difference. Bon Apetit - Afiyet olsun.
