Recipe for family meals :

Savoury Spinach

It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.


2 lb Spinach, trimmed and washed
6 tbsp butter, softened
1 x salt
1 x pepper, freshly chopped
1 x nutmeg, pinch
1 x clove garlic, small
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup seeded raisins
1 x ham, smoked (optional)


  • Cook spinach for about 5 minutes in a saucepan.
  • After squeezing thoroughly to rid of as much water as possible, chop it coarsely and put into saucepan with the softened butter and other seasonings.
  • Stir over very low heat until butter is almost absorbed.
  • Add small clove of garlic, crushed in garlic press, 1/2 cup pine nuts, 1/2 cup seeded raisins (softened 5 minutes in hot water).
