Yum! I love spinach and this simple recipe turns the colourful vegetable into a delicious side dish. This quick, cool dish is great with fish or chicken. Enjoy!

Nif I agree Yum is the word! I made as written, chopping the spinach and serving in baked acorn squash bowls. We loved the light Asian flavors and that the spinach was perfectly with just the 1 minute in boiling water. This is a true keeper that we will be enjoying again. Thanks for the post.
