Nice way to serve spinach and so good for you! The secret is not to overcook the spinach. I like to add a few roasted pine nuts or pumkin seeds with a nice jolt of Marsala wine. I love to serve this recipe with Ginger Yogurt Sauce. Just spoon the sauce over the spinach when it is on the plate MMMmm

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a skillet.
  2. When it is hot but not smoking add onions.

  4. Add spinach, but only for a minute or two, stir until just wilted.
  5. Add lemon juice and salt& pepper.
  6. Serve.

Simple and wonderful! I added some extra lemon juice and used plain ol' regular onions. I used this recipe as a filling inside rolled-up rotis for a great, light dinner!

This was really nice... my family loved it (especially my mother, being a spinach fan!). I added some crushed garlic to the onions and it gave a lovely bit of extra flavour, but I'm sure it would be just as nice as is =)

loved this recipe. quick and easy and a wonderful flavor. made exactly as directed. next time i want to add garlic just cause i love garlic even though recipe does not need it. my spinach was way passed the "use by" date and the end result was still delicious.
