Ingredients
  • 1TB olive oil
  • 2 shallotspeeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlicpeeled and finely chopped
  • 250g baby spinach
  • salt and white pepper
  • 60g double cream
  • 40g sour cream
  • Pink Himalayan Salt
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan and cook the shallots over a low heat for 4-5 minutes until softened. Do not allow them to colour.
  2. Add the garlic and continue to cook over the low heat until the shallots start to slowly darken and gently caramelise. Be patient with this, it can take up to 10 minutes of gentle cooking. (Garlic burns easily and turns bitter, this is why we cook the shallots first).
  3. Add the spinach and stir continuously until the spinach wilts. (Depending on the size of your pan, you may have to add the spinach in two batches. Once the first batch wilts, you will have space for the second batch.)
  4. Continue to stir, increasing the heat slightly and continue to cook the spinach until it darkens and has completely cooked through.
  5. There should be no liquid at all, any moisture released from the spinach must be cooked away. In total, you should be spending about 7-8 minutes cooking the spinach down.
  6. Season the mixture with salt and white pepper, then scrape the contents of the pan onto a clean chopping board. Chop the spinach in a criss-cross fashion into smaller pieces.
  7. Return the spinach to the pan and add the cream and sour cream. Over a low heat, gently warm the creams through, stirring well to coat and combine.
  8. Serve seasoned with Pink Himalayan Salt.

Recipe Notes

If you can’t be bothered cooking down the shallots and garlic, I have also made this dish using only 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp onion powder along with the olive oil and spinach -all in the pan, cooking down as the recipe indicates. It will take you much quicker with similar results.

In short, you need not subtract anything further.
