You would be aware of how much I love spinach - I have withdrawals if I don't eat it for a few days. I also love green beans and lemon. So combining these into one dish just seemed logical. I also like to serve at least something green with each and every meal.
The lemon adds just enough tang to make these greens just a little extra special. I served this to Scott and Mark along with the roast chicken and roasted garlic mashed potato.
Ingredients (serves 3)
3 handfuls green beans
Drizzle olive oil / knob of butter (whichever you prefer)
200g spinach washed and dried
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the olive oil or butter in a fry pan. Cook the beans until cooked through, but still crunchy. Add spinach and saute until wilted. Add the lemon juice and zest and serve immediately.
