This week in French Fridays With Dorie we made spinach. This was a super easy side dish to make. Easy and full of flavor. It had a wonderful lemon flavor that complimented the spinach nicely. Now to how easy this dish is to make. To begin you toss baby spinach in some olive oil, grated lemon zest, salt, and freshly ground pepper. The spinach is then steamed until tender. I steamed my spinach in a pasta pot that has a steaming basket. I steamed my spinach for about 5 minutes. Dorie suggests you start watching at 3 minutes. Once the spinach is done, you are ready to serve it. You can smell the lemon as you are removing the spinach from the steamer. I loved this dish. I am going to make this dish again for Easter.
