Ingredients

  • 1kg spinach leaves, washed
  • 90ml double cream
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • Freshly grated nutmeg to taste

Method

  1. Blanch the spinach, in batches, by putting it in a large colander set over the sink. Slowly pour over a kettle of boiling water. When the spinach has cooled slightly, use both hands to squeeze out the moisture.
  2. Transfer to a chopping board and chop finely. Bring the cream to the boil, add the garlic, then bubble until reduced by half. Add the spinach and reheat in the cream. Season with salt and a generous grating of nutmeg to taste.
