Servings: four as a side dish.
This side dish is a fine partner for roast pork or fish. For a simple vegetarian meal for two, serve a larger portion topped with a poached or fried egg. If you can’t find small white beans, you can use cannellini beans.
Add the spinach and 1/4 tsp. salt, and cook, turning with tongs, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the basil, lemon zest, and a few grinds of pepper. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, and serve.
This is a great & simple side dish
I was very disappointed after reading two great reviews. Not very impressive - the flavours did not come together at all.
Love this recipe! I also do this with broccoli raab.
I served this topped with a fried egg as suggested in the magazine. It was delicious and so simple. My two teenaged boys loved it (with two eggs). As an extra bonus it's a low-cost vegetarian meal.
