Great with chicken, lamb or fish.


  1. Clean the spinach thoroughly.
  2. Grill the pine nuts until golden brown, watching carefully so as not to burn.
  3. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil and toss in raisins and spinach.
  4. Drain as soon as spinach goes limp.
  5. toss in olive oil and lemon juice, and scatter with the grilled pine nuts.

This was good, but it just lacked "something" to make it a 5 starer for us. It was nice with the crunch of the pine nuts, and the sweet of the raisins, but maybe it needed more than just a dash of the dressing ingredients, and a good hit of salt and pepper and maybe some nutmeg to finish it. I plan to keep tweaking this one to suit our tastes, so thanks for another great veggie recipe Eve.

Love that it's so lightning quick to put together! I omitted the olive oil and didn't miss it even a little bit. Instead of cooking the spinach in a pot of salted water (and losing all it's nutrients in the process), I cooked it in a saucepan along with the raisins and 1/8 cup water, which worked out just fine. This is a great way to dress up plain ol' spinach. Thanks Evie! :-)
