Calories: 132 per portion

ingredients

serves 4
1 kg (2 1/4 lb) leaf spinach
15 g (1/2 oz) butter
1/2 onion, finely chopped
salt
grated nutmeg
3 tablespoons natural low-fat yogurt
40 g (1 1/2 oz) flaked almonds

method

1. Sort the spinach, put in a sieve, rinse and drain thoroughly. Tear the leaves into manageable pieces.

2. Melt the butter in a large pan, add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes until softened. Add the spinach, a little at a time, turning it in the butter to coat. Season with salt and nutmeg to taste.

3. Cover and cook over a low heat for 10-15 minutes, until tender, depending upon the thickness of the spinach leaves.

4. Stir the yogurt into the spinach mixture. Immediately remove the spinach from the heat and transfer to a warmed serving bowl. Add the flaked almonds to the butter remaining in the pan and fry, stirring, until golden.

5. Fold the almonds into the spinach and serve immediately.
