Simple, yet flavourful. I used the stems and leaves of spinach, which made it a little difficult to lodge it onto a fork while eating! Next time I'll just separate the stems from the leaves, but won't omit them since they add a nice crunch! Adding sesame seeds would also be nice variation.

I like this with olive oil instead of butter and a clove or two of pressed garlic sauteed in the oil before adding the spinach.

This was delicious! I added about 1 tbsp of finely minced onions. Thx!
