French Fridays with Dorie – Lemon Steamed Spinach

IMG_0232I have been a spotty French Fridays participant lately and I’m really sorry guys! I’m here! A little late this time, but still here. Honestly this is the easiest recipe in the entire book so if I couldn’t manage this one there would really be something to worry about. Not a whole lot to say about it other than that it’s not my favorite way to eat spinach. I like it fresh and crisp in a salad or cut up really small and mixed in something delicious like spinach dip or quiche or really anything with cheese.

IMG_0234This wilty spinach was the bed for yet another Pinterest chicken recipe I tried tonight. I liked it – it was similar to Magic Chicken but healthier since it used Greek yogurt instead of mayo. There was a little bit of spinach left over and I have vowed to eat it tomorrow with my lunch because it’s good for me goddamnit!

IMG_0236If you want to give this lemony spinach a try, throw a little olive oil on fresh spinach, season it with salt, pepper, and the zest of a lemon and then throw it in the steamer for 3 minutes. That’s all there is to it really. This week’s recipe is olive-heavy so I think I’m going to go back through the canon of past recipes and pick one to try. Sorry guys, me and olives just don’t mix.

  1. Life gets crazy sometime, don’t stress 🙂

    The olive cookies were surprisingly non-olivey (even my olive hater liked them) – but it probably depends on the type of olive used.

  2. Everyone liked this week’s recipe – and, good for you for making it. I haven’t. Same excuse as the past two months – selling house, moving two states away, stressed. But, the move is over. I’m not particularly settled but who cares? And, I did put together the sablés recipe tonight and will bake it off tomorrow. The dough tasted pretty good. I look forward to see what you choose to make instead of this week’s recipe. I hope it’s a chocolate-something.

  3. There are lots of catch ups to choose from for non-olive-lovers. We really enjoyed the spinach this way, but we’ll both eat spinach no matter how it’s prepared.
