Recipe: Spinach & Mushroom Fry Up

This little side dish is a nutritional jewel! Spinach is full of vitamin K (one cup of cooked spinach yields more than 150% of your daily intake requirement), vitamins A & C, manganese and plenty of flavonoids and carotenoids – all which help to protect your body against many diseases and cancer. Add to that the goodness of onion, tomatoes, mushrooms and garlic and some healthy fats from butter and olive oil (you need those to absorb all those vitamins) and you’ve got yourself a winner.

I made it over fire at our last camping spot and we had it as a side with fried up eggs but you can easily make it at home for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s a very delicious way to eat spinach.  

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp butter or ghee
  • 5-6 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 red or brown onion, sliced
  • handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 tsp diced lemon rind
  • 1 garlic clove, finely diced
  • 3 large handfuls of torn spinach leaves
  • about 2/3 tsp sea salt
  • pinch of ground black pepper
  • pinch of nutmeg (optional but nice)
  • drizzle of lemon juice right at the end

Instructions

  1. Heat butter in a large frying pan and sauté mushrooms for 3-4 minutes until browned and cooked through. Remove to a plate.
  2. In the same frying pan, heat olive oil to medium hot (not too sizzling hot) and sauté sliced onion for 2-3 minutes until slightly translucent. Add tomatoes, lemon rind and garlic and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cook for a further 2-3 minutes and press tomatoes down with a spatula until lightly smashed.
  3. Finally, add the spinach and stir through. I added spinach in two batches, letting the first batch cook off slightly to make more space for the second batch. Cook until spinach is just wilted (turned wet and reduced in size). Season with a little more salt if you like and drizzle with some lemon juice right at the end. Serve with eggs or your choice of protein such as sausages, steak, chicken or fish.

  • I love using chorizo to flavour dishes. Pork goes very nicely with prawns and squid and I like the vegetables used in this dish.

  • Marie Rose dressing is a British condiment – mayo and ketchup mixed together To make it paleo friendly I suggest to make your own mayo using olive oil or find a commercial one using olive or worst case sunflower oil, basically avoid canola or soybean as much as possible. This recipe however, calls for yogurt instead. Just use normal full fat variety and instead of ketchup use some tomato paste.

  • This is a bit of a prawn ceviche dish but you could easily grill the prawns after marinating if you’re not sure about eating them raw. Great fibre source salad.

  • Everyone’s favourite meatballs with a difference – no meat! Fresh fish is used, which together with Sicilian herbs and spices creates a light and fresh dish.

  • Make it Paleo: This recipe contains dairy such as butter and cream, both of which are high fat content and low lactose so perhaps you can get away with it. Otherwise you can probably use ghee and no cream, which will make it a bit thinner in consistency but the flavour of the mushrooms will still be amazing. Beef fillet and standard mushrooms can be used instead and you can add some dried porcini mushrooms for that wild forest flavour.

  • You don’t really need to dust the meat with flour as you can thicken the sauce with a little tapioca flour or through evaporation method (aka cook with no lid on for the last hour). Peeled white potatoes are fine in small amounts but feel free to replace with sweet potato, swedes, parsnips or throw in zucchini and cauliflower in the last hour.

  • Use ghee instead of butter if avoiding all dairy (although butter is pretty much fat with hardly any lactose left). Higher-welfare just means free range.

  • Even when I'm on holidays, I find a way to cook. I just miss it too much. We've been making our own breaky and lunches while staying in the climbing campsite in Turkey. For dinner, we've been eating whatever the local chef cooks for everyone and it's been delicious and inspiring. #turkey #food #travel #digitalnomad #antalya #cooking #eatdrinkpaleo
