Spinach is plentiful through June and there are a lot of thrifty but imaginative ways to use spinach. Here are some ideas:
1. simple oriental spinach (see picture) shred spinach stir fry in olive oil and serve sprinkled with soy sauce. Great served with grilled fish.
2. greens and cannellini beans – blanch spinach for a minute in boiling water, drain well, then cook gently in olive oil with sliced garlic and chilli. Stir in some drained cannellini beans (or other pulses), season well and drizzle with olive oil.
3. max out your meals – to make curries, stews and risottos go further, stir in spinach towards the end of cooking. Adds flavour, colour and stretches your supper to feed another person.
