    Bergy's Note:

    Spinach & leeks are a great flavor combination. You may want to adjust the lemon with the oil to suit your taste. Season with salt & pepper just before serving or leave it up to the individual to do it at the table. If you don't want to steam or microwve this recipe make it in a Wok or skillet -Pour 1/2 cup of chicken stock or wine into the wok medium heat, add leeks & tarragon cover with a lid. It will steam and brown nicely (apprx 7 minutes). Three minutes before serving add the spinach. You may need to add a bit more moisture, squeeze on the lemon juice cover for 3 minutes or until the spinach is wilted and hot through - Mix well with the leeks. Enjoy. My two photos shown are using a wok to prepare this recipe. I do not use any oil with this recipe just the lemon juice.

      I microwaved the whole recipe. So easy. I`d use the left overs for an omlete filling or a quiche or mix into your favorite cooked pasta for a complete meal.This is something you don`t feel guilty eating! I did add roasted garlic to it. Thanks for a healthy side.

      Another excellent recipe from you Bergy! The beauty of this recipe is very few ingredients.The vegetables aren't overshadowed by butter sauce or unnecessary fillers. I used organic leeks and tender baby spinach leaves. There is a fine line between wilted spinach and slimy, so I would strongly suggest watching the steaming process carefully. Didn't use the tarragon only because the flavor would have clashed with my Indian-themed meal of rice and lentils (dahl). Hubby rolled all the ingredients up- lentils, rice and your vegie recipe into a whole wheat burrito. It was quite tasty! Love the simple lemon/oil dressing. Very little salt was needed as the spinach has it naturally. I hope my fresh tarragon is growing by the time I make this again. Thanks for sharing. cg
