DIRECTIONS

  • Clean your spinach really well in a sink full of water, and remove any tough veins and stems.
  • You may have to repeat the cleaning process several times to remove all the grit from the spinach.
  • Remove from water, but do not dry.
  • Clean the leek well in water, then chop all of the white part and any of the green part that is tender.
  • This should yield between 1 1/2 to 2 cups of leek.
  • Heat oil in a wok over medium heat.
  • Add the spinach, leeks, and tomato.
  • Cover, and cook 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Leeks should be crisp-tender at this point, and spinach wilted.
  • Drain the vegetables in a colander and immediately return to the wok.
  • Stir in the pernod and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook uncovered approximately 5 minutes or until the liquid has nearly all evaporated.
  • Serve.
