Not much to say about this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (Lemon-steamed spinach, p 331) except that it’s my new favourite way to enjoy spinach. I steamed baby spinach with a drizzle of olive oil and a generous dusting of lemon zest and made sure that it was not over-cooked.
I served it with another Dorie recipe, Chicken Breasts à la Diable… It looked pretty alongside a mostly-brown dish!
Can we just say, had I been introduced to spinach prepared like this when I was a child, I might have been a fan of these leafy greens much earlier in life… So simple, so good.
French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs (though this week’s recipe can be found online here); we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Go on, treat yourself then join us here!
