Spinach and chard are the vegetables that I like the most. Ways to prepare them there are many, but there is always a recipe that you have more love. It’s the one I bring today, the favorite at home. My children and my husband loves it. My youngest daughter doesn’t like to eat vegetables, but for this dish, she will eat it without complaining. I give her one portion, and she can finish it. If we have visited, I often serve it, since it is a super easy low-carb side dish that is a perfect accompaniment to any main course entrée. Even if the guest is a vegetarian, they can eat it as the main course. They always ask for extra ration.
I like to share this kind of recipes, for the endearments that are at the same time simple and rich. I’m sure you’ve ever tried spinach in this way. If not, do not delay in doing them because I’m sure you’ll like them.
