I was delighted that we ended up with a recipe that was more
of a trick/technique than a standard recipe on this busy week.
We celebrate the Easter holiday and while Nana is carrying the load and
treating both our families to the Easter meal- it was a particularly busy
week nonetheless. A perfect week for an easy recipe and I put this one to
the test when I bought the spinach after 9 pm this evening. The dish was
knocked out within minutes of my arriving home from the grocery store.
Bonus points before I even tasted it :)
I could not believe that dressing the spinach before steaming it would work
but it did and my husband raved about it. Yes, he gets spinach snacks at
9:00 at night and is happy to taste test any "Dorie food" at any time :)
I had not dressed spinach with grated lemon zest before so he really
enjoyed the flavoring while I appreciated the technique and the lovely
aroma as it steamed - the lemon zest smelled wonderful.

cannot- and no worries-my family did not get this portion to eat
Happy Easter and Passover to those that celebrate ~Per Nana~
I do not own a steamer so I improvised, as you can see from my photo.
Normally when I cook spinach I use olive oil with a bit of crushed red
pepper and garlic. As you know, spinach cooks very quickly and is
done in a matter of minutes. This recipe was a nice change.
I liked steaming the spinach and we enjoyed the flavor of the lemon.
All in all, this was a lovely side dish that I served with fish fillets.
Happy Easter to all who celebrate it.
