    Cookgirl's Note:

    A spinach side dish from the Catalan region in Spain. Strong Moorish influences! Whatever you do, DO NOT overcook the spinach! From Jose Andres Tapas: A Taste of Spain in America. Love Jose's recipes!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 tablespoons spanish extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 gravenstein apple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4 inch cubes (read *NOTE)
    • 1/4 cup pine nuts
    • 1/4 cup seedless dark raisin
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
    • 10 ounces fresh Baby Spinach, washed and patted dry (I use a salad spinner)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      *NOTE: Original recipe specified a golden delicious apple. However any apple variety that holds its shape well for baking will work in this recipe: Rome beauty, braeburn, gala, for example.
    2. 2
      Heat the olive oil in a large pan over a medium-high flame.
    3. 3
      When the oil is very hot, add the apple cubes and cook until they are lightly browned; about 1-2 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the pine nuts and cook until they are lightly browned; about 20-30 seconds. Watch pan carefully as the pine nuts can burn quite easily! *Constantly stir the nuts to avoid burning.*.
    5. 5
      Add the raisins and the 1/2 teaspoon salt; stir together. Add the spinach and sauté very fast until it just starts to wilt; about another 20-30 seconds.
    6. 6
      Now remove the pan from the heat; the spinach will continue to wilt off the heat.
    7. 7
      Add salt to taste, and serve immediately.

      Great spinach recipe! I usually prepare spinach with more savory ingredients so this was different for us but we really enjoyed it. Quick to make too which is always a plus. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

      Fantastic! The apple, nuts and raisins make you forget your eating spinach. Made as written using a Gravenstein apple. Thanks for a healthy, yet very yummy post.

      I really enjoyed this recipe! I have always liked the combo of spinach and raisins so I knew I would like this. I used a Gala apple. Very fast, easy and healthy! Made for ZWT5.
