Once the spinach is washed, wilt it in just 2 tablespoons of water with the lid on. Drain the cooked spinach and add some Stork Margarine to serve. If you prefer to steam it, the procedure is pretty much the same, but you should allow it to cook for 3-4 minutes. You can also enjoy spinach raw in salads or added to stir fries.
For a great tasting creamed spinach, cook in a frying pan with some onions, milk, a Knorr Vegetable Stock Pot, a dash of cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg. To create a wonderful creamed spinach soup, cook some finely diced onion and some chopped garlic cloves in a little olive oil on medium heat until the onions are softened, which will take about 2-3 minutes.
Turn the heat on medium low and add the washed and dried spinach. Sauté the spinach with the onions and garlic for 2-3 minutes but don’t overcook otherwise your spinach will lose colour.
Add some cream and one Knorr Chicken Stock pot to the spinach and bring it to the boil. When it comes to the boil remove quickly from the heat and transfer to a blender for the perfect, flavour packed soup.
