Ingredients

Method

  • Step 1

    Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling salted water until just tender, then drain well.

  • Step 2

    Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a 20cm non-stick frying pan and cook the onion for 10-12 minutes or until really soft. Add the spinach and cook for a few minutes until wilted (add in batches if needed – it will wilt very quickly).
